About This File

..so I have to help someone and remember how to get the session ID,
then remember how to shadow. All from a command prompt. Not cool.

So I wrote this,

Is coded for Windows in English. May work in other languages too.
( as long as "qwinsta" runs, this should work )
 It now calls wtsapi32.dll

For this to work as intended, uncheck "noPrompt", or make the changes
 to the group policy, only if you know what you are doing.
( I will not aid anyone on how what, as I'm not qualified )

This is for when all works as you wish, but have to use the
 command line to shadow a user ( and everyone is in a hurry ).
This gives you a list of users to just click to help the
user on a remote session, by guiding them ( view ) or
interacting with the desktop ( control ).

I do not advise to change anything on your system, nor to use this,
but if you find it useful, then, it is a very practical utility.

  I did not post in the examples forum as is not an example worth posting.
  It grabs the text out of qwinsta Calls wtsapi32.dll
 and runs mstsc. Not a noteworthy example.
