Remote Desktop TO Vista Home Premium(HP)

Q: Remote Desktop TO Vista Home Premium(HP)

Hi everyone,
I have scoured the web for a solution to this. Yes, I know MS built Vista HP not to be able to "receive" Remote Desktop.

Right now my Vista HP 64 can easily "send" Remote Desktop out to my Windows 7 Pro and XP Pro systems.
So! Is there a current tool/hack anywhere which I can use to RD "TO" VHP???

I am not interested in any third party tools such as LogMeIn where my credentials leave my house. I want to stay completely behind my firewall.

Any working solution will be really appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Remote Desktop TO Vista Home Premium(HP)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi guys... I have a series of questions about this topic:

I'm using Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP1 on my desktop PC... and on my laptop I have Home Premium 32-bit SP1... when I'm away from home and on my laptop (school, work, etc) I would like to connect to my desktop at home so I can run stuff, etc etc etc... but the problem is I don't know how to set these things up!! I don't even know if it's possible for a 32-bit to connect to a 64-bit.

As for the connection on the desktop, it is hooked up on a Linksys WRT54GL router running DSL. Laptop would connect mainly wirelessly. I don't have any "aftermarket" firewall programs on my desktop (only Windows Firewall enabled).

I've never done anything with remote desktop before except back in the days when I had dedicated servers (those had info provided with remote desktop connection etc etc). I'm desperate to find a way to do it with my own machines!!

Any help appreciated. Good day!

We have a employee trying to connect to her workstation at the office from her home computer, but the desktop connection will not connect.

We have established a successful VPN connection to the SBS 2003 R2 Server, and can even remote desktop into the server, but we cannot connect to the workstation even using the network IP address for that machine.

Home PC = Vista Home Premium
Network Server = SBS 2003 R2

Can anyone help us identify why we can connect to the server but not the workstation?

I am trying to connect to two computers that are connected to a Linksys Router using Remote Assistance on a Vista Home Premium Machine. I get the error message that the person you are trying to help may have closed remote assistance. I get the same message when trying to connect to either machine. I am guessing the problem is with a setting in the router, but I don't know what setting.

A:Remote Access from Vista Home Premium to Vista Home Premium and XP Home Edition

You should forward the ports on the router to the IP Addresses of the machines, that you want to connect to. On Symantec PC Anywhere, it is ports 5631 and 32, on Windows remote desktop connection it is port 3389 that needs to be forwarded.

This is from MS's Windows Vista Help:

You cannot use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to remote (host) computers running the following editions of Windows Vista:

? Windows Vista Starter

? Windows Vista Home Basic

? Windows Vista Home Basic N

? Windows Vista Home Premium

I guess I should have done my research before I purchased Home Premium...

When I had XP on my office PC (in my upstairs office), I would often use remote desktop from my laptop while watching TV and such. Can't do that anymore!

Is there any work around for this other than PCAnywhere or a similar product?

Well, you could use any variety of VNC to achieve a work around. They aren't nearly as seamless as the windows remote desktop, but they do work in a pinch.

Hello --

I'm thinking of upgrading to Win 7 home premium since XP is no longer supported. I run it through my Mac with parallels.

Stupid questions, maybe, but I'll ask them:

Does home premium have remote desktop and if so is it possible to use it with a wireless internet connection? I seemed to have been able to do this with XP, but the bitrate was slow, and it's jut been upgraded to handle streaming audio (the work that I do streams audio from a server, rather than downloading it; just the way my employer wants it).

Do I need an ethernet cable running to my Mac, or can I use the airport connection (the wireless internet option) to stream audio?

A:Does Win 7 home premium: remote desktop: wireless internet possible

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

You can compare the features here:
Compare Windows 7 Editions

All versions of W7 can connect to other computers using a Remote Desktop Connection (RDC). But only Pro and above can host an RDC session. In other words, only Pro and above cal receive an RDC call.

I use a wireless connection with RDC. I can stream audio and video via RDC via wireless. I'm just not sure about an airport connection. You let us know :-)

I'm afraid I might already know the answer - is it true the only Professional and Ultimate versions of Windows 7 can accept Remote Desktop Connection requests? I read on a post from 2009 that "any version of Windows 7 can act as a Remote Desktop client, but only Ultimate and Profession can host a Remote Desktop."

I'm not sure I completely understand that - I do understand what host and client mean.

However,d despite lots of different setting changes, I can't connect to this Windows machine using Remote Desktop.

In my job at IBM, I connect to hundreds of computers daily using Remote Desktop, easily. That's why the OS version issue seems like a strong, but frustrating, possibility.

Okay, so I beat my head against my desk for 20 minutes this morning because I couldn't see the "Remote Desktop" section under the "Remote" tab in "System Properties" under "Allow Remote Access" in "System and Security"...

Then I realized that one of my machines is running Win7 Home Premium and the other is running Win7 Professional. According to MS's website, Win7HP users can't allow a remote desktop connection.

So my questions is... what is there a "Remote Setting" link and what does "All Remote Assistance" connections to this computer do if not allow "Remote Desktop" connections?

I guess I don't understand the difference. Color me ignorant, but I thought (probably wrongly) that Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance were the same thing... But they aren't, right?

Thanks...

A:Question about Remote Desktop and Win7 Home Premium

I searched for differences between Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance in Win7 and didn't really find a side-by-side comparison. I found articles talking about the differences in XP, but not Win7.

I did notice one difference: With RA the person needing help has to initiate the process, right? I thought that I read that RD was faster than RA... is that correct? Any other differences in capabilities? Thanks...

Hello,
I am trying to access my Laptop using Remote Desktop, but unfortunately after hours of troubleshooting I gave up :-(
I hope the following feedback of what I've done or observed will help solve this issue:
- No listening on TCP Port 3389 was displayed after executing netstat in cmd line

- Remote Desktop Service in services.msc is set to automatic and restarted several times
- TermService running in Task Manager with PID 1196. Netstat shows however that UDP is listening on port 5355 for that PID

- RD access is activated accordingly in the system control panel.
- Deactivating the firewall didn't help
- May be an important observation : Since following two drivers are not listed under the Device Manager:

Hi, can anyone tell me if Windows 7 Home Premium supports remote desktop connections?  In the "compare" list that Microsoft gives comparing all versions of Windows 7 there is no indication that it doesn't.  But in looking at the instructions on
this page:
http://4sysops.com/archives/how-to-setup-remote-desktop-with-windows-7/
On the screenshot under #3 - on my computer the bottom part of that window called REMOTE DESKTOP doesn't show up!  So just wondering if I need a different version.  

A:Does Windows 7 Home Premium Support Remote Desktop Access

All editions of Windows 7 include Remote Desktop Connection.

 

You can use Remote Desktop to initiate a connection from any edition of Windows 7.
You can connect to computers running Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, or Windows 7 Enterprise.
You can't use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to computers running Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home Basic, or Windows 7 Home Premium.

Yesterday my PC crashed, and now when I log on to Windows I have NO DESKTOP. Luckily, the one thing that does come up is the Documents folder in Windows Explorer, and from there I can get to most of my files. This works, but it's a real pain to have no desktop or start bar.

Tried calling Windows support, no help there. Tried using the online chat, and that was even worse. You would think that a multi-billion dollar company could at least have the decency to provide real service for those unfortunate enough to have to use their buggy, proprietary software.

Anyway, I figure there's probably a fairly simple solution to this, and I've just overlooked it. I was trying to play a movie on DivX when it crashed. I tried deleting the .avi and uninstalling the DivX player, no luck. Tried booting in safe mode, and I get the same problem.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

To the best of my knowledge, I've never noticed a folder on the desktop of a Vista Home Premium specifically named "desktop". On mine, it has one & 99% of the time ALL downloads go in it. I have even deleted said folder but it always returns. No biggie, just curious.
 

A:Vista Home Premium desktop folder?

Probably whatever software you use for downloads (or at least one of them, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox) has accidently got a default value for the download location of 'desktop'. If you use a specialist downloader that would be the first place to look.

The trick will be to establish a different location to be used as default. You are using Vista I assume, but from Win 7 onwards, the location tends to default to the last one you specifically chose when prompted.

So download something, and take the option to 'let me choose' then select whatever you want, such as Favorites\downloads. The default should normally be Favorites\downloads (see below)

Note on a standard PC there are already several directories called 'desktop', for instance under Favorites, and under c:\users\ every user including \public and \default also has one. It's all hopelessly and unnecessarily complicated. For instance the location I just mentioned, 'Favorites' is not a real location at all, but is really C:\users\<myusername>

Also it is still quite common for older type software to assume the desktop is a reasonable place to put a downloaded file. This is mainly because it shows up under the users nose all the time, under any windows version. But to be honest, once you start trying to understand the whys and wherefores of a Windows OS you are just pointlessly shortening your life.

Hi All,

I did the Vista compatibility scan on my desktop last night, and received the recommendation to use Vista Business.

This desktop is a home use machine, and I would prefer to use home premium

the spec for the desktop is:

Gigabyte GA-945GCMX-S2 motherboard (Rev 6.6 1066 FSB)
Intel Pentium Dual-core E2160 Processor (800 FSB)
ATI Radeon X1300 PRO Graphics card (256Mb Ram)
2 X Seagate SATA HDD's running in IDE Mode
Windows XP Professional (My Employer's Corporate version)
Office 2003 (Corporate version)
Gigabyte GD-1703BP V.3 17" LCD Monitor (soon to be replaced with a ASUS MB19TU 19" wide screen LCD)
I also have a HP PSC 1110 All-in-one printer and a CANON PiXma 4000 printer attached to the PC, and have been told to get the Vista drivers from the vendor (no problem with that!), same as for the Radeon

Could you advise - it seems that the business version does not support the multimedia apps. as well as HP does

Thanks

I'd suggest that you check out the features here for specifics on what you get/don't get: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/...ons/choose.mspxDon't forget to check the Canon and HP websites for Vista-compatible drivers for your printers before upgrading - this will surely affect your decision to upgrade.

Hi, I'm new here.

I have just purchased a new Asus M51VR notebook with Vista Home Premium SP1 pre-installed & all Windows updates downloaded. All working well so far (my first experience with Vista) except whenever I restart Windows my desktop icons appear briefly then disappear. This only happens with my desktop icons - my taskbar & gadgets are all visible. I can right-click on my desktop & in the "view" sub-menu I uncheck then check "Show desktop icons" & my icons re-appear - until I restart Windows again & they disappear again. I have tried another method by closing the "explorer.exe" process in task manager, then opening the DOS window & deleting the "iconcache.db" file in "C:\Users\****\AppData\Local" folder, then restarting explorer (re-building the "iconcache.db" file) & my icons re-appear - until I restart Windows . The only other way I can access my "invisible" desktop icons is by enabling the desktop toolbar on the taskbar, but this will not do. I have also installed, updated & run latest versions of Spybot & SUPERAntiSpyware with nil results. I have downloaded HijackThis but have not run it yet, as I am not that confident enough with Windows processes.

I believe another process may be interfering on startup, by the manner in which the icons appear briefly then disappear as all the startup processes load? Or is it a simple Vista glitch ... Read more

Hi brodes

I also recently got an ASUS M51V Series notebook with Window Vista pre-installed.

I hadn't changed the power settings (but my 5 yr old was playing on it - so I'm guessing he somehow changed it). I'm also guessing (I don't know much about the technical side of computing) that the other setting must stop all "unnecessary" power usage, and that may be why the icons disappear.

(sorry, frustrated! as i'm sure everyone else has been also!)  next thing i know browser changed, adds popup, redirected to their webpages in the middle of work and all work lost.  finally figured out where and who this came from, but cannot uninstall in programs and features.  gives me a list of programs and etc(?) that has to be closed first, unable, told to do manually, still unable but then microsoft flashes message that critical error occured and has to shut down.  i've run scans of everything i can think of and nothing.  tried fixes, support, and so lost i dont remember what im trying to do at times. 
my goals:  1) remove this adware  2) turn windows defender on  3) try to reinstall adaptors: microsoft Tun miniport adaptor, and microsoft 6to4 adaptor #2.    without crashing my computer completely!

Here's my issue
Setup:

Wired home network behind a NAT enabled router to cable modem to internet

I recently bought a HP DV9548US Notebook running Windows Vista Home Premium. Lately, when I turn the computer on it takes about 30 seconds to get to the page where I choose my account and logon with a password. The strange part that is bothering me is that it takes about 1 minute to reach the actual desktop. I've seen similar posts, but not for my Vista version. So, I know there is probably something wrong, but not sure how to approach a solution.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

We did a number of updates on our Dell 530 Inspiron desktop. The computer runs very well, although it will not stay asleep. After the updates, we noticed the Device Manager indicated that the Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface had a Code(10). I followed all of the recommended reinstall driver recommendations, used Microsoft "Fix It," tried Device Manager/Action/Add Legacy Hardware to no avail. Now, under network adapters I now have the following: (1) Intel(R)82562V-2 10/100 (2) Microsoft Tun Miniport Adapter #2 and #3. The machine runs perfectly except for sleeping as mentioned previously. It easily connects to the internet.

I would appreciate direction on (1) approach to solving this problem and/or (2) solution already listed that seems to fit this situation. Quite honestly, I don't feel like my skill level allows me to do much if any with the computer's registry unless it is very simple.

Thank you for taking the time to read and respond to this question.

For the Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface either ignore it or right-click on it and see if you can disable or delete it.

For the waking up problem the first thing to check is possible devices waking it. For example, if the mouse is allowed to wake the machine it will sometimes do so as the result of the tiniest vibration.

Hi, I've been having BSOD problems(I don't actually see a BSOD the power just goes off) ever since I upgraded from Vista Home Premium to 7 Home Premium.

It occasionally happens during start-up or randomly(no specific program or website) at other times. It will also occasionally freeze and then I need to reboot.

I'm new at this and not tech savvy so hopefully I've included all relevant information. If not please be kind.

My System:

32 bit
Original O/S: Vista(came pre-installed)
Windows 7: Upgrade Version
System hardware is about 4 to 5 years old
Age Of Windows 7: I upgraded to 7 about 3 months ago

A:BSOD after upgrading from Vista Home Premium to 7 Home Premium

No DMP included...

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

A:Replacing Vista Home Premium with Windows 7 Home Premium

When you get the Vista DVD, boot from it and choose Custom "advanced" installation. Then highlight the partition you want to put 7 on (preferably the Vista partition) then click "delete" (be careful which partition you choose) once the old Vista partition is deleted, be sure the new unallocated partition is highlighted and hit next to continue installing 7. Here is a screenshot, your partition structure may be slightly different.

I reinstalled my operating system with the operating system disk to try and erase everything from my harddrive but its not deleted. Everything is still here in C drive backup, "I believe". I can only access program files and I can not delete anything within backup. Were the desktop files deleted?

Furthermore, when I try to delete backup, its keep saying "This folder is shared with other people. If you delete this folder, it will no longer be shared. Continue" and when I click continue it says the same thing. Then when I click continue again it says "destination folder access denied. You need permission to perform this action". How do I delete it?

A:Where is desktop in backup? How do I delete backup? in Vista Home premium 64-bit

Hi -

Please further explain what you are referring to by "backup" - is this a folder on the c: drive?

Are you using the Vista recovery DVD(s) that came with that particular system to re-install Vista?

Happy Holidays !

I was wondering --

I bought Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade when it was 1/2 price in July. I can also purchase Windows 7 Professional through the Ultimate Steal here in Canada.

I currently have Windows Vista Home Premium on my computer. I really don't want to do a clean install.

After I do an in-place upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium, can I use the key from Windows 7 Professional to upgrade to that version?

After that, can I then install Windows 7 Home Premium on a friend's computer, using the same key I had originally used on my computer, now that I'm not using Windows 7 Home Premium any more?

Thanks.

A:Upgrade Vista Home Premium --> 7 Home Premium --> 7 Pro

It appears the Upgrade keys are much more flexible than in the past, so it is worth a try at install. The worst is that you would have to use the key that came with the version.

No one I've read knows for sure whether an upgrade deactivates the underlying O.S. key, and MS's own Technet MVP's say it doesn't in case of reinstall need. It violates the EULA, of course, which says the upgraded OS replaces it except for reinstall.

Since upgrade keys are working in clean installs, you might want to try this providing your Vista Premium is retail so that you can migrate it to your friend:

1) Make an image of your Vista Premium install so it can be easily restored.

2) Try a clean formatted install booting from desired Win7 Upgrade version, which should take the key, or require the double "upgrade over upgrade" trick so the key is taken.

3) If this works, you can migrate your retail copy of Vista to your friend's computer, if not just use your backup image to restore it for in place Upgrade.

You will need to make a backup image of the finished job to avoid having to reinstall both OS in the future.

Heres my story:

Yesterday I was messing around on my brand-new laptop, and I was stupid enough to try a keygen to get Ultimate (I had HP). Surprising. It worked but the copy wasn't genuine obviously. So then I rebooted, pressed F8 at boot. An ran Toshibas recovery to try to get the computer to its out of box state. I got stuck at initializomg (either that or I was impaptient) so I turned off the laptop. Then when I truer to boot I got bootmgr is missing. I have an old vista Hp disk so I installed that for the time being. So my question is, how do I get it back to the original state? I do t have any important data or anything. Please note the laptop didn't cone with recovery disks.
Thanks

A:Upgrading from Vista Home Premium to 7 home premium?

If you no longer have a working recovery partition and no recovery disks, you may be forced to contact Toshiba and see if they will sell you recovery disks.

You could download an ISO of Windows 7 HP and install from that, but that would just give you a clean install, not return you to "original state".

I then went to upgrade the system to Windows 7 Premium. I chose the "Upgrade" install and not the "Clean" install. I've checked the updater to confirm that all my system information was adequate. I uninstalled the ATI Catalyst Controller, iTunes, etc. that it wanted me to. Oddly enough, the ATI Catalyst Controller was the most recent driver that supports Windows 7.
