In principle - yes. In practice - we don't have any facilities specifically targetted towards remote desktop testing, so you'd have to build your test by using the basic APIs we provide.

Assuming that you have a remote desktop window open on your PC and connected to the other machine, and assuming that you can discover the position of the various UI elements of the remote desktop displayed in the RD window, then you can use the Input Injection API to inject input and accomplish what you need to accomplish.
