Our client has given us a copy of their old software, which requires a USB key to run. I'm 300 miles away. Here's the trick to using Remote Desktop in this scenario (run at a command prompt):
mstsc -v:servername /F -console
Presumably this would also work with other kinds of dongle. What you're doing is connecting to the console session. The caveat is that this only works if the host machine is Windows Server 2003. If you don't have that sitting around, then you can also use RealVNC.
