Cannot Remote Desktop because windows logon software replaced

Error: You cannot initiate a remote desktop connection because the windows login software on the remote computer has been replaced by incompatible software c:\windows\system32\awgina.dll

OS= Windows 2003
PCA= version 10

Cause: PCA is a unsupported version for that version of OS, so the gina for PCA will not work with remote desktop

WARINING: Making Changes to your registry can destroy your OS, if you don’t know what your doing.

Fix #1 (This will stop PCA from working):

  1. Backup your registry
  2. START
  3. RUN
  4. regedit
  5. go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\Microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\winlogon
  6. key GinaDLL needs to point to msgina.dll instead of C:\windows\system32\awgina.dll
  7. reboot

Fix #2 (this will give your both PCA and RDP):

  1. Upgraded your version of PCA to a supported version

PCA= PC Anywhere
RDP= Remote Desktop Protocol

    it says client cannot accept new connection.
