We have Visual Studio on our server P.C. and we have created multiple user accounts on the server. Now, when we run the same project from multiple accounts, and host them on local host, when one user logs in with some account ID, Password, the other user which has already signed in by some different account, logs off automatically. Is there any way to prevent this?

Windows client editions (like Windows 7) only allow one RDP session at a time.

If you need multiple RDP sessions concurrently then buy a Windows Server OS and enable terminal/remote desktop services (RDS), and/or perhaps check out:

I dont have a problem in giving remote access to multiple users to the same system. I have created many users with the administrative rights on that system and all can simultaneously use the system with their account provided to them. The problem occurs while hosting the Visual Studio Project via TFS. If one person logs on, the other persons TFS logs off. – Azzy Jan 11 '13 at 12:47
@Azzy - IMO Techie007 answer does answer the question (what is written in the OP)! I think you should make this clear in your OP (how VS is related). – Dave Jan 11 '13 at 13:23
