As the topic states...Trying to log into my W7 desktop from my W8 laptop and it keeps saying wrong password. I can login fine using the exact same username and password from another W7 machine..

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks..

You have to use the same username & password that is on the machine you are trying to connect to. Otherwise use Teamviewer to do Remote Desktop.
