Free Hamachi Disconnects when Remote Desktop Connection Disconnects

I sometimes use Free Hamachi to access my PC from elsewhere but the performance is slow, I assume because I have slow internet Upload speeds.

 

So I have tried Remote Desktop Connection, which works. But when I disconnect Remote Desktop Connection, logmein Hamachi also disconnects on the remote pc so I cant access it again.

 

Searching the knowledge base and internet it seems people think running the following .bat file before disconnecting solves this problem. They also confirm this is a known problem with free hamachi.

 

tscon 0 /dest:console
tscon 1 /dest:console
tscon 2 /dest:console
Rundll32.exe User32.dll,LockWorkStation

 

Questions:

1. Do I run this on my pc I am using or on the remote pc I am accessing using Remote Desktop connection?

2. It does not seem to work on either (all I notice is that I get my user logon screen and I enter my password, nothing else visible happens)....but Hamachi still disconnects.

3. After running the .bat file what should I do next? I still have Remote Desktop Connection running on my pc so I close it.

4. I dont understand the last line of the .bat (I assume I need it?)

 

ps. I understand once I find my session id using query user I might only need 1 of the first 3 lines of the .bat file.

 

Thanks!!

Clarification:

2. It does not seem to work on either (all I notice is that I get my user logon screen and I enter my password, nothing else visible happens)....but Hamachi still disconnects (I ASSUME AFTER I close REMOTE DESKTOP CONNECTION in step 3 below).

Did you by any chance install Hamachi durring a RDP session? because if so you'll need to uninstall and then reinstall Hamachi while you're locally infront of the machine.

No - I have been using Hamachi for a while before I tried to use RDP.
