    Remote Desktop problem with Windows 10 10240

    Greetings everyone. I'm a longtime lurker here at Brink's forums. Learned a lot from the tutorials. Thanks!

    I upgraded Windows 7 Pro (legit license) to Windows 10 Pro. My main computer uses Windows 8.1. When connecting to another Windows 8.1 computer using remote desktop the connection goes through smoothly and I take control of the computer. When I connect to the Windows 10 Pro computer my connection is dropped with this error. It seems that the Windows 10 computer drops the connection and logs back in with the default user. Is there any way to correct this? I'm about to dump Windows 10 and go back to 8.1 because of this. Any ideas?

    You will find problems with 10, until they release it out to the consumers and also put fixes up on/after the 29th. Majority of us are using Teamviewer, even in the Enterprise environment. RDP is one of those items that is slowly going away from being used by IT professionals, because Microsoft refuses to fix 16 year old issues with it, that involve security.

    Well thanks for the information about Teamviewer. I just took a look at it and I'm glad to see it's free. I could have just installed VNC on my computers, but I was happy using remote desktop as long as it worked. I'll take a look at Teamviewer. I have one PC that doesn't support remote desktop, so that will come in handy.
