Step 5

You will need to log off and log back on for the changes to take effect.

You will now be able to connect to multiple Remote Desktop Sessions on the same user account.

Alternatively you can use this Registry .reg file to disable the setting above:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server]
"fSingleSessionPerUser"=dword:00000000
