    Is there an easy way to check if I RDP to a remote computer whether it's running as a VM or a "Real" machine.

    Thanks

    RDP Will no longer login to Windows 7 VM

    I have a Windows 7 VM running an old application, because the application will not run on Windows 10. I have been RDP into it for months, and now it is giving me this error:

    "Your password may have expired or the remote PC might not accept blank passwords"

    Here's my environment:

    Windows 2008r2 DC

    Windows 7 & 10 Pro PC's

    VM is on Win10 Pro PC, Workgroup

    Like I said, worked a month ago.

    I attempted to RDP from Win7 Pro PC and received the same message. But the old RDP gives you more information, and I saw that I was trying to login with a domain user, instead of a local user. Changed the login to login as a local user and it connected right
    away.

    I then tried to change the login on the Win10 PC to a local login and it still gives me the same error. Is the format of local login (Machinename\Username) different on the new RDP?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  4. When using RDP can I tell if Remote is running as a VM

    RDP freezes remote

    Win 10 laptop rdp freezes the remote desktop immediately upon connecting. Remote is running Windows 10 Pro. The desktop remains frozen until powered off and on. I believe no settings have been changed since it used to work properly. A different laptop
    is able to rdp successfully into that desktop. Strangely, the laptop that is able to successfully rdp cannot see files on the remote when the homegroup icon is clicked--says the remote is currently unavailable, but the laptop that freezes the remote can see
    and open files when the homegroup icon is clicked. When I google remote freezes I get info about Windows 7, and the "Virtual Agent" doesn't understand my question. Thanks for any help
