Multiple Simultaneous RDP Sessions in Windows 10

Multiple Simultaneous RDP Sessions in Windows 10

Option 1 - Modifying termsrv.dll

To have concurrent user sessions working in Windows 10, you need to make small changes to termsrv.dll file. This file is located in C:\Windows\System32 folder. Before modifying termsrv.dll for the first time, you need to take ownership and assign yourself full permissions. You also need to stop Remote Desktop service (TermService) if it's running. To do that type the following commands into a "Run As Administrator" command prompt.

net stop "Remote Desktop Services"
takeown /F termsrv.dll
icacls termsrv.dll /grant:r User:F

The same DLL file is also present in a cache location, I recommend that this file is deleted but can be patched also.

takeown /F C:\Windows\WinSxS\...

DLL files can be modified using any HEX Editor (for example Tiny Hexer). You can do this yourself by replacing strings shown below.
