    Logical interactive windows stations

    I understand I can have multiple windows stations inside a session,
    But only one named winsta0 can be accepting inputs and displays.
    But can I just create a winsta0 on the fly and create all the stuff inside it,
    and change its name and give this reserved name to another windows station,
    just like a token, then when everything is initialized, when I am changing windows station,
    I just name the windows station winsta0 and the other one some other names?
    Will this work?

    Probably not, but you'll need to try it to be sure.

    WinSta0 object is never created by third party code. Win32 API does not provide a way for renaming it. So there is no ground for your plan. You definitely need to read MSDN more thorough. Besides, I would recommend some of Russinovich's Windows Internals book for studying in regard to bootstrap and shutdown logic. Going to save you a lot of unresponded questions here on the forum.
    Best regards,
