Enabling autorun at OS startup

Autorun for current user is enabled (and disabled) by pressing the button (shown below). Each time when user makes a login the remote client is started and connecting to server. When user session is ended the remote client terminates. If workstation is locked or user has been changed the remote client continues working but can't transfer the display content and interact with it. If you want to enable autorun for all users look below.

rdsrv autostart

Enabling autorun for all users at OS startup

At first you should make sure you have the admin rights on the remote desktop. Please, look here.

If not, you need to use elevation request or disabling UAC. User's help you will need in both cases (except Windows XP, if you know admin password).

Having admin rights on remote desktop, you need press the button (shown below). Now when any user makes a login the remote client is started in user session. Besides, the special library is registered in system providing ability to remote logon using any user, whose name and password you know. Please, look here.
