A Windows 7 feature that is disabled by default is “Concurrent remote desktop sessions”. Basically, a concurrent remote desktop session allows several user to connect to a system trough the remote desktop feature, so multiple user can access and control your system.
By default Windows 7 has a session limit for remote desktop connections (simply because it’s more secure) that only allows one simultaneous connection.
If you want enable multiple sessions, for whatever reason, then you got to patch the file “termsrv.dll”.
Deepxw, who is also the creator of the Universal Theme Patcher that allows you to install unsigned Windows 7 themes has developed an awesome tool that allows you to enable concurrent remote desktop sessions with just one click.
