I know you asked for native C++, but .NET has SystemInformation.TerminalServerSession. Worst case you could write a thin C++/CLI DLL that returns this value to you.[^]


Sorry, but you don't need to use .NET at all.


Code snippet from that link:

#include <windows.h>
#pragma comment(lib, "user32.lib")
BOOL IsRemoteSession(void)
   return GetSystemMetrics( SM_REMOTESESSION );
