WinXP: How do I allow read-only remote desktop to non-admin users?

Using (WinXP flavored) Server 2003, how do I allow read-only remote desktop to non-admin users? I don't want to use the "invite for Remote Assistance" feature of MSN Live Messenger. I would rather have a method that doesnt require the chat program and instead ONLY requires the terminal services client program.

"I don't think there's any way to use RDC in view-only mode, unless you write yourself a program incorporating the RDC ActiveX object. I believe some such projects may be found around the web, but it's a heck of a job. So I think that you really need to look at third-party products.

This article 6 free remote desktop sharing and screen sharing solutions describes six quite interesting solutions. One of them night suite your needs.

Another solution is to use the new screen-sharing option now incorporated into Skype Screen sharing. It's certainly quite interesting to continue talking via Skype while you share your screen."
