Here is my situation:

I have a Windows 8.1 where a local account is always connected (no time out configured by GPO).

My goal is to open a RDP session remotely with mstsc and with this specific account. So we will recover our session remotely.

My constraints are:

I don't want any popup to allow the RDP session, because this is a bot session locally. I absolutely need that when we disconnect from the RDP session, the local session have to stay open (no lock).

How can I proceed to respect my constraints?


Install hyper-v on the server you are running this client on and use the hyper-v console to connect rather than RDP. If your "bot" is requiring a GUI, you have other fish to fry on the app side.
