Manual replacement of the termsrv.dll file
By default Windows 7 does not allow access to any concurrent users in the system. At this situation, if the host tries to login, it may not be possible if there is already a user logged in. Replacing the termsrv.dll file may resolve this issue. You can manually install or replace it. The only thing to be kept in mind is that if you are running a 64-bit operating system, then make sure to replace it with a 64-bit one itself. After this process, you may see multiple users in the Users Tab that is in the Task Manager.
Creating user accounts

In that, double click on the 'User Accounts' option and then select the 'Create New Account' option. Hence, you can create a new account in Windows 7 system.
Some tips to manage multiple users in Windows 7 are like copy the id file of each user, creating an office location for every user, etc. Users are also recommended to create and connect to all the necessary servers for each user and also give them the correct locations.
