I'm having a problem in ASP.NET opening the Microsoft PowerPoint Component when the Windows Server doesn't have an RDC (Remote Desktop Connection) Active User Session.

My question is how do I leave the RDC user session active in the Windows Server?

Below image was in a Remote Desktop running Windows Server 2003, showing the popup to choose which existing session I want to login and use. I want to set it up like this in Windows Server 2012. How can I do this?

  1. Login as administrator account in RDC.

    • Run cmd
    • Type mstsc /v:serverName /admin then hit enter.
  2. Find the session # of the RDP-TCP session name

    • Run cmd (RDP Client)
    • Type tasklist or query session then hit enter. This will show all the running processes. On the 3rd column you will see the session #.
      • Type tscon session# /dest:console then hit enter. You will receive this pop-up message "Your Remote Desktop Has Ended" Ex: tscon 2 /dest:console
