Of course, I thought one of the values of having a login was at least to track who is using what resource. Making PW too automatic (or not required) may reduce some of that assurance.

If you download the rdp file from the connection reservation and open it
with a editor, you see that the rdp file has both a user name and
password within the setting file.  For example, the last rdp file had
the following key entries:

clear password:s:LDgKQM

I would have thought that this would be passed to the remote desktop
when opening this file with mstcs.  But it is not and I don't know if
this is how it normally works or is it suppose to be able to passed it
to the Win7 remote desktop and I'm doing something wrong.

I'm relatively new with VCL and I may be wrong. I could not find any options in preferences for RDP file to include password. Having password in RDP file would make it easier and if it's possible it would be great.

I would like to have this option as well and will be looking into the code which generates a RDP file for new reservations.

Thanks Dmitri,

Wanted to confirm if its possible by using the rdp file, users can auto
login with the mstsc (would be preferred over entering password
manually).  Thanks for such a quick reply and answer to my question.

Take care,

Username/password would be on your reservation page.
Username is Admin, password is generated for each reservation and you need to type it manually when open RDP.

Hi there,

I wonder if any of you bright individuals can help me out here with this
wonderful project you got here.

When I use the RDP file supplied on the vcl connection page (Windows 7 client) , I assume it will automatically supply the credentials to log into the remote desktop image (Windows 7 image). The problem is that it
does not automatically logs in and it prompts for my password.

Do I have this wrong and a password is needed to be manually entered? If not, how do I enable the auto login? I have tried changing group policy settings on the remote desktop host but nothing works. I appreciate any
help anyone can give.
