    If RDP passwords beginning with # are saved and checked for auto login the login is not possible.

    Can anyone confirm this to me?

    Regards

    You may need to escape the "#".  I have passwords with "$" that have to be entered as "abc\$xyz" for them to work correctly

     
  • Hello there!

    Ok, this bug has been fixed for upcoming PAC 3.3.9.6, but remember that *you will have to remove any '\' characters you may have appended to the password*. That is: in 3.3.9.6, simply put your plain password (including any special character), without "escaping" it.
