Desktop connection remotely from Windows 7 to windows XP Edition family

I have a laptop running windows 7.  I'm trying to use the remote desktop connection to connect to my office.  The desk top is an Imac.  I have partitioned the hard drive on the Imac and am running windows xp home edition on the side of the windows partition.  It is this 'computer' and I try to access it via the desktop connection remotely from my laptop.  Thanks in advance,


The editions of Windows Home, if XP or Vista (and maybe even 7) may not be the side server to a remote desktop connection.  They do not contain the code necessary to accept the connection.

    You need third-party software to do this, I suggest you use your favorite search engine and check for the software that supports this option.

    Note: Using third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

  • Remote Desktop connection between my Windows 7 and a new friends Windows 8.1

    Hello. My friend just got his first computer and is completely lost. She has absolutely no experience with a computer and a computerphobe of full tilt. We are 400 miles away and tried to help him by phone with little luck. To make things worse, I think that someone in which she rose to set his computer did not understand 8.1 either. I've been computing for a long time and have studied 8.1 and feel comfortable with it. But I never configured before remote connection and am unsure of certain things.

    First the operating environment:

    My computer: Inspiron 560 s under Windows 7 Home Premium.

    I'm on a home using Netgear network. I'm not using a wifi connection.

    His new computer: desktop HP Pavilion Slimline model 300-413 running Windows 8.1.

    I'm not sure of its network connections.

    Note: I use this to 8.1 as a guide (the link opens the guide for Windows 7...? But I use the guide for 8.1)...

    I think I can happen by steps 1.a. to 1.e. without any difficulty.

    Now the questions:

    1. in step 1.e.1. regarding 'Locations', I don't know what are the options it will present with or should I tell him to choose?

    2. to step 2.b. on the 'system', I know that she must see 'Computer name' and 'Working group', but I'm not sure what she's going to see in which area '? This does not appear on my version of Windows 7.

    3. If I can talk to him through this, she will be able to watch what I'm doing on his monitor?

    Please keep in mind that it is a perfect beginner so no instructions to its end should be as simple as possible, and I am new to 8.1 and uncertain as to what exactly she will see during the installation.

    She told me yesterday that she is so frustrated that she's almost ready to throw it all in the street and forget it. So any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • Cannot run executable LabVIEW on desktop connection remote

    I have a couple of executable files, which are compiled using a LabVIEW 2011 development system, installed on a Windows XP computer.  These programs run fine when I double-click the icon while sitting at the computer.

    If I connect to the phone remotely from another Windows XP computer using Remote Desktop connection, I can use the remote computer normally except for the executables LabVIEW.

    When I double-click on one or the other, I get the error message displayed in the attached file. The part of the text of the report has no useful information, just two lines that seem to be field for e-mail names.

    What gives?

    Remote debugging is not a good substitute because it requires the executable file already be running.

    I was able to run two executables LabVIEW on desktop connection remote to a virtual machine of Windows 7 with 2 GB of RAM, running on a MacBookPro using Parallels Desktop.

    This confirms that the problem was insufficient for memory resources.

  • I am not able to make a desktop connection remotely through Citrix

    I use Citrix to connect to my desktop of my computer at home.

    For the last two weeks, I had connection problems. Sometimes it works, but more often, it isn't. I get the error message says the following:

    "The specified remote computer could not be found. Check that you have typed the correct computer name or IP address, and then try to connect again. »

    I know I type the correct computer name because it is saved in my drop-down list. As far as I know, nothing on my desk, computer or computer at home has changed, but the problem is incompatible because sometimes it connects and sometimes is not.

    Basically, the steps I take are as follows:
    1. go on citrix. [company] .com
    2. enter my username and password and click Connect
    3. click on the desktop
    4. I get a pop up message saying I chose to open launch.ica coming http://citrix of Citrix ICA connection. [company] .com. What should Firefox do with this file?
    5. I choose to open with Citrix ICA Client Engine Win32 (default)
    6 then I get another pop up message saying this program has known compatibility issues and Citrix ICA is not compatible with this version of Windows. -C' is the same message that appears still, and it's always worked before.
    7. I click on the program
    8. it brings me to a generic research office running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2
    9. I then click on the Start Menu and choose desktop connection remote
    10. I select the name of the computer in my office (which is default) and click on connect

    That's when I get the error message.

    Anyone know what could be the problem and how can I find a solution?


    Sorry for the Delisle in response.

    Given that the problem is related to the remote desktop connection, I suggest you contact the assisted support by using the following links:

  • Clean install of Windows Vista Edition family

    Due to a Virus, I had to perform a cold install of Windows Vista Edition family.  After completion and activation of the software, I received a message that my product is already in use.  It was a clean install on the same computer that has more than 3 years.

    Hello Steveowe,

    It's normal. To activate it, you use telephone activation. It's free in most countries. See this link from my Web site:

    Hi guys,.

    I regularly connect to computer Windows 2003 Server R2 of various computers via remote desktop without problem. However, I just got a brand new computer running Windows 7 Edition Home Premium and for some odd reason I can't connect to the Windows Server 2003 by using Remote Desktop connection. I tried to disable the firewall on both computers with no positive results. My DRC telling me that it cannot connect.
    Can someone give any idea why this computer refuses to connect? Y at - it no service apart from the DRC services that should be running and can I get a list and try to restart their? Is it possible to re - install Remote Desktop connection? Maybe a download for windows 7 because I find only one for Windows Vista & XP.
    Thank you
