Removing Remote Desktop Restriction

By Tom_in_NJ ·
We have a user that is getting an error message whenever they try to use Remote Desktop from PC's with Windows 2000 Professional. The error message is: This Operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator. Other users of this PC do not experience the error, and this user is getting the error on multiple PC's.

I have researched this enough to find that it is probably a registry key, but cannot determine which one. Most references to this error message refer to restrictions on Internet Explorer, not Remote Desktop, and thus direct me to the wrong registry key(s).

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I ran into something similar today at work. In my case it was a local security setting. The user that was trying to use rdc did not have a password for there user account. If this is the case either have them create a password or from Local Security Settings, go to Local Policies, then to Security Options, there set the "Accounts:Limit local accounts use of blank passwords to console logon only" to disabled

Hope that helps.
