Windows 7 - Unable to log-in using Remote Desktop


  • Today I am unable to login using RDP from XP to Windows 7 machine.

    The error is: "The user name or password is incorrect."

    It's weird, because i can access the same Windows 7 machine with same credentials using my account.

  • Hi Waqar,

    you might get more help inside a forum covering Windows 7 Logon questions. (You might want to check out the different Windows 7 Technet forums or Microsoft Answers). This forum covers Windows Forms which is a GUI technology for developers inside the .Net Framework.

    My guess regarding your problem is, that you just gave a username and password. When initiating the RDP session, the domain was taken from your XP system. So the authentication failed.

    You can always give the domain together with the username e.g. DOMAIN\USER. If your system is just a stand alone system, you should replace the DOMAIN with the computer name.

    I hope my suggestion is helpfull.

    With kind regards,

  • Hi Waqar,

    I'm glad to hear that you have found the solution.

    The forum is for developing issues of Winform. So your thread is off-topic here.

    You will get better solutions from Technet and Answers:

    If there are any concerns, please feel free to let me know.

    Thanks for your understanding.
