I'm remote desktoping from a Windows 7 machine to another Windows 7 machine. The login popup has a checkbox "Remember my credentials".

Even though I checked this box, the next time I logged in, I had to re-enter my password.

Any idea why, and how to persist my credentials?

Solved! I've accidentally checked a checkbox in the "Options" tab of Remote Desktop login screen, labeled "Always ask for credentials".

The server has the option of refusing cached credentials. Try it from a different machine or login to verify it isn't the server.
