    You can't, just like you haven't been able to do this with any Windows
    client up to Windows 8.

  • Try this:

    maybe it works in Win8, too.

  • Andre is suggesting patching the termserv.dll file located in the System32 folder.  I believe the way this is cracked is by hex editing the termserv.dll from a desktop OS while comparing to the same dll on the server OS.  Probably won't be a way to do this until server OS is available.
