    I'm trying to run Remote Desktop Connection Client 1.0.3 for Mac OS X on my MacBook, but when I run the program I am prompted for login information. The problem is that I don't have a password set on my Windows machine and if there was a password set for that account, I no longer remember it. Does anyone have any insight on what I can do?

    Have you tried your user name and no pass?

    otherwise you might have a password with auto login is set.

    You could jump infront of the computer
    & set your password to something you know.

    You MUST set a password for your windows user to login with Remote Desktop. You can't connect vie remote desktop for users with blank passwords.

    So, is it possible to setup my Windows system so that it has a password but doesn't ask for it everytime I boot it up? :hsugh: I know that sounded stupid. :o
