    The XP Hack is probably one of our more popular tech threads. I found this on the internet for Vista and wanted to post it as well.

    I found the article over at Download Squad, who talked about the hack discussed on The Green Button, and also a great, complete guide written and posted by Alan Cooke

    Here is a snippet from Alan's page, being the quick and dirty details:

    Should be noted this will only work for Vista Business and Vista Ultimate, as it appears those are the only two that support Remote Desktop

    Venom, you can have multiple sessions open at once. This hack only applies to RDP connections TO Vista. When you RDP into Vista it kicks out the user currently logged on and/or locks the computer.

    From Vista though, you can have as many connections out as you'd like.

    You need a seperate account for this to work, you can't login twice with the same user account. If you try to login with the same user account, you will either force them off or get some weird message, not sure really.

    Well in XP if you log into the user that's already logged in then it would simply lock that user out and let the remote user use that account. I'd imagine Vista would be the same, I'd test it but I decided to revert back to XP.

    i remoted in from a vista laptop to my vista PC and it does lock out that account you logged in to. I have not tried creating a second account on the PC to see if my original "main" account will get locked if i log in as the second user via remote.

    Well it's only a WinRAR SFX archive with a batch file and the cracked termsrv.dll.
    If you have a doubt you can open the .exe with WinRAR. :)

    Does anyone know if this replaces RDP version 6 with the old XP RDP 5? RDP 6 that comes with vista looks cool and is a good improvement, but its a shame if this patch reverts it to RDP 5.

    No no ... This has nothing to do with XP.

    I only tend to use the same account so don't really need this patch.
    Quite happy that accessing from work locks my desktop.

    Can't check the file from here (can't check .exe's) but I guess it will be easy enough to check out what it does.

    Why upload something for others that you have not tested on your own machine first?

    Please read carefully...
    I said I have not tested in Business Edition (Because I only have an Ultimate Edition).

    I've tried to use the .exe you uploaded but some of the dll's are corrupt. Any chance you could upload them again?
