Multiple user can login to Windows Server using rdp but Desktop edition allows only one active user session. To have multiple RDP sessions in Desktop edition, server version of termserv.dll is required. So by patching termsrv.dll, multiple concurrent sessions can be enabled.

Peter Kleissner has written and published a little utility which does all the job automatically. In case original source becomes unavailable, you can download version 1.8 from mysysadmintips. If you are not keen on running unknown executables on your machine, source code is also available.

termserv.dll can be edited using any hex editor to enable concurrent sessions as described here.
