Tried to install Windows Remote Desktop Connection.

I'm running 32 bit xp pro svc pk 3, ie 8. I have a friend who is running xp home, svc pk 3, IE 8. I want to set up a connection to remote so I can help with fixing on the xp pc problems at home. Search in the forums gave me this site: , I tried to download from my cd and got a msg saying it is already installed on the xp pro and look under the heading accessories communications remote desktop connection, I did it but it is not listed. Services has help and Auto Connection - connection - management session in this moment I on manual, I started the services and their changed automatically, but it isn't always in my accessories.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


Thank you N Syed, but I finally found a site that has responded to my question. Noted above, and it explains where and what file to find mstsc file and place it in the folder of the comm in VAC. However it gave me an error msg: specified file is not found. PAM handed the file system protected to system32 and instead, I created a shortcut on the desktop. and now, I'll check the link above.

Downloading and the ms support link is fine, but they do not explain where the file is located on your computer, it just says that it is loaded in your pc.

Appreciate your attempt anyway. Thank you and I am afraid that this question is closed.

    Remote - Windows 7 for XP Pro desktop

    Hi Caslon540. Here's something that might help you troubleshoot:

    Another thought, is that you will need to download a later version of connection desktop remotely (version 6.0 or later) so that XP can handle the incoming connection to Windows 7 that uses authentication NLA.

    Hope that helps.

  • using windows Remote Desktop connection 7 to vista

    I bought a laptop with windows 7 and I would like to know how I can remote control my Office Home premium windows vista in my laptop with windows 7.  I read that windows vista does not allow the conections using the remote desktop connection tool.

    is the different way to connect to my vista to windows 7, when I'm away from home?

    It can be done in certain versions of Vista, but not in all.  The ability is disabled by default.  Here's how to set it to the top and also explains in which versions it works:  Unfortunately, Home Premium is not included.

    Here is an article on how to use 3rd party free software to add Remote Desktop capablility to Home Premium:  Use it at your own risk.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • 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.

    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?

  • Remote Desktop connection for XP Pro to a pc Windows 7

    I am trying to connect to a Windows 7 Pro pc using my Windows XP Pro computer.  I created the firewall for inbound and outbound rules to a specific port, set the port on the Terminal Server and upgraded the Remote Desktop Client in the XP box to 6.0.  However, I still can't connect to the Win7 pc unless I completely disable the firewall.  Could someone please give me a solution to this problem?

    Thank you


    The firewall blocks the traffic, you probably does not correctly configured the ports and its opening.
