  1. Remote Desktop Password Incorrect Windows 10


    Hi all, I have a problem with 2 PC’s both running Win 10 Pro x64.


    Let’s call them Tower & Laptop.


    The issue is with remote desktop connections, & shared folder access.


    I have a peer to peer network which has been running fine for several years. Due to the imminent end of life of Win7, I have started moving over to Win10.


    My “office” computer is moved fine as is my wife’s. They are both running Win 10 Pro x64. I can connect to my wife’s computer with remote desktop OK & vice versa.


    I have just updated my laptop and that is where the issue is.


    I can connect by remote desktop, from the laptop to the tower OK.


    I cannot connect from the tower to the laptop.


    They are both on the same network and IP pool, they are both visible on the network, and, I can ping one from the other, by IP address & computer name. They can both access the same network shares.


    I have set a share up on the local disk of each and shared with “everyone”. When I try to access the laptop share from the tower I cannot as it rejects the username &/or password combination, just like it does in Remote Desktop.


    When I try and access the tower share from the laptop it will work with the truncated local user name “short username”, & my Microsoft account password.


    I can log into my Microsoft account online OK with the password, & it is definitely right as it is copied and pasted.

    It seems to be a configuration issue on the laptop, but I cannot find it.


    Remote connections are enabled as is sharing, both computers have the network connections set to private. As the laptop can access the tower, I have copied as many of the settings as possible, but still no joy.


    It seems to be a mis match in credentials or settings with regard to the user account on the laptop? However, I cannot find this.


    I have deleted all credentials from Credential Manager and they have been re-created automatically.


    I know the password is correct as I have checked by logging into my Microsoft account online with it.


    I have tried various combinations of username, from:

    “short username”, “laptop\short username”, “laptop\firstname.lastname”, “laptop\*** Email address is removed for privacy ***, “MicrosoftAccount\short username”, “MicrosoftAccount\*** Email address is removed for privacy ***


    Where “short username” is the name of the local user directory, i.e. the first 5 letters of the Microsoft account name & firstname.lastname is the name used in the Microsoft account.


    This is not my first foray into remote desktop, and prior to wiping the laptop to install Win10 it was working fine with the tower machine remote controlling it, so it’s a software issue with Windows somewhere, I also have another Win7Prox64 machine yet to be updated & a Win10ProX64 machine which I can connect to from the tower, so the tower seems to be OK.


    Can anyone suggest anything to help please?



    Thanks in advance

    :)
