Local Security Authority Cannot Be Contacted

Just found this out today: when trying to use Remote Desktop to connect to a Windows 7 Professional x64 workstation, the Remote Desktop app will return an error if the user you’re trying to log in as doesn’t have a password.

In today’s computing environment I would not recommend not using a password for any account. This is a new box I’m building that is currently sitting on the floor. To make things easier for myself, I enabled Remote Desktop so I can install apps comfortably from my own workstation.
