Symptom:

You configure the RDP Shell to specify user name and password; however, the session creates but does not login the user.

Issue:

The credential provider (CredSSP) is not enabled by default under XP SP3. You will need to enable the CredSSP provider because stored credentials will work.

Resolution:

Upgrade to XP SP3 and follow instructions in Microsoft KB951608. A Microsoft FixIt tool has also been created and can be directly downloaded at:

Turn on CredSSP (Microsoft FixIt #50588).
