    RDP connection to computer with microsoft account

    I am trying to setup RDP connection between two Windows 10 machines. The PC from which the connection is opened is using a local account while the PC that I'm trying to connect to is using a Microsoft account.

    Upon entering the string MicrosoftAccount\microsoftaccountusername@example.com with the correct password no connection is established.

    Thank you in advance,

    So I just created a local account on my client computer. I RDP'd into my server computer. I did not have to put any domain in front of my Microsoft Account username. The local user I created on my client computer is NavyLCDR. My Microsoft login is firstname.lastname@hotmail.com. When I remoted to the server computer all I entered for username was firstname.lastname@hotmail.com with nothing in front of it, and the password associated with the Microsoft Account.

    I have tried this also, and even have reset my password and still cannot log in.
