How to Enable Concurrent Sessions in Windows 7 E-mail

In honor of Windows7 hitting the big RTM (release to manufacturing) milestone, I figured it best to start fresh with this Guide and archive the old one . The process below has been confirmed working with the release version Windows7 Ultimate x86 & X64 build 7600.16385. Unfortunately since Ultimate is the only version of Windows 7 with Remote Desktop, it's the only one so far that will work with this.

One of the most popular articles ever at has been our guide on how to enable Concurrent Sessions for Windows Vista. For those unaware of what it is, enabling Concurrent Sessions allows you to Remote Desktop into a system that someone else is on, under a different user account, and access the system without kicking the user off. I, for example, use the feature to have MCE running on my Television, and then I remote into my main user account to access all my files without interrupting my MCE session. All kudos go out to the original folks at WinMatrix forums (ShipIt, Pinobigbird, untermensch & Cocoa) who posted the instructions and files to edit the files as needed to work properly. Without them we would never have gotten this far! MissingRemote
