mstsc /console doesn’t work in Vista SP1

Good lord, why would they change this?

In Vista SP1, Microsoft disabled the ability to use the /console switch for logging onto the console session when using Remote Desktop.  The ‘fix’ is to use mstsc /admin

  1. A side note, I’m on Windows XP SP3 and I have to use the /admin as well, I found out today it won’t work with /console. It must be the latest version of Remote Desktop.

  2. Lots of people, even the ones working on IT doesn’t understand what a “console” is, I think is that simple.
