Hiya

Remote Desktop in Windows XP Professional provides remote access to the desktop of your computer running Windows XP Professional, from a computer at another location. Using Remote Desktop you can, for example, connect to your office computer from home and access all your applications, files, and network resources as though you were in front of your computer at the office.

System Requirements

Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP

Preferred Solution: Windows XP Remote Desktop Connection software [XPSP2 5.1.2600.2180]

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.)

Hiya

The downloadable Remote Desktop Web Connection ActiveX control provides most of the same functionality as the full Remote Desktop Connection software; however, the Remote Desktop Web Connection is designed to deliver this functionality over the Web. The Web package Setup program installs the downloadable ActiveX control and sample Web page on a server running Internet Information Services (IIS) 4.0 or later

System Requirements
This package may be applied to the following:

All Windows 2000 platforms
Windows NT® Server 4.0
Windows NT Server 4.0 Enterprise Edition
Windows NT Server 4.0 Terminal Server Edition
Important: The Remote Desktop Web Connection download package must be installed on a computer running Internet Information Services (IIS) version 4.0 or later. This dependency applies to the Web server only. Users can download the control and view the Web pages from any supported Web browser (Windows 32-bit versions of Internet Explorer 5.x or higher).

The last few weeks, I've been getting this error upon logging into Windows XP Pro SP2. The only option the system gives me is terminate the process. Naturally, if I do that, then nothing will run. If I just move the error message to the side, my machine works without problems. If I send or don't send error report, the system hangs and becomes unrecoverable without hard rebooting the system. I have found that if I disable Automatic Updates and BITS services, I will not receive the error, but I cannot get Windows updates. It won't even let me search for them to see if new ones have been released. I've seen reference on different forums of the solution always being in another thread that I can never seem to locate. The exact error is this;

Since I upgraded to Windows 8, I am no longer able to save individual Remote Desktop Connection files as .rdp files. I am talking about the traditional Remote Desktop Connection application on the Desktop that was in previous Windows versions, not the
Remote Desktop App from the Windows 8 store.
When I try to click on the Save button I get "An error occurred while saving to file"
When I try to click on the Save As button I get "Unable to open connection file" with the file address being where I tried to save it with the file name at the end.
Also when I upgraded to Windows 8, my .rdp files disappeared from my Documents folder.
 I need to create different .rdp files for different programs that my employees get into on my server. Now I have to hand type all the info each time into the Programs tap on the Remote Desktop Connection window, because I can't save to an

 I like the Remote Desktop App from the Windows store but it won't let me designate specific programs to use using standard dos notation (ie c:\program files\ etc..). It just goes to my server desktop.

Hi there,

I have two computers connected to my home network (wi-fi) and my laptop is running windows xp pro, and I want to connect to my laptop using the Windows Remote Desktop Connection.

I have followed the official guide, but when it mentions typing in the IP address when connecting to a remote computer via the internet, it doesn't mention what to do if there are two computers on the same ip address.

So If I am sat at an internet cafe, or work, and I want to access my laptop which is at home, when I load up the Windows Remote Desktop Connection program, do I just type the ip address, and it will find my laptop and ask for my login details?

I use a Macbook laptop with Snow Leopard and an HP desktop running Windows 7 Professional. I'd like to be able to control the pc from the Mac using Remote Desktop Connection for Mac.
I've set up the pc as outlined in this forum and downoaded RDC onto the Mac. When I initiate RDC on the Mac, it asks for user name and password, and automatically plugs in the domain.
My pc doesn't have a user name or password, but if I leave those fields blank I get a message "Try again. The credentials that were used to connect are incorrect."
Can anyone help me out here?
Thanks.

A:Remote Desktop Connection for Mac (Windows 7)

You must have a password in order to connect via Remote Desktop, Your user name "should" be what your name is on the Start menu. Create a password in the User Account Control Panel, (Click on your display picture in the start menu for a shortcut) and then try connecting.

P.S. You might want to clear the domain field of whatever is listed if you are part of a workgroup.

I have Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. First of all let me say I have searched the forums, searched google and still can't find the solution for getting remote desktop to work AGAIN.

My wife uses it to connect to her school server. The server is used by her ENTIRE district, it is always up and running, absolutely nothing wrong on there end.

We HAD been connected and it worked fine for almost 2 years, all of a sudden it just stopped working. It gives this error:

Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:

1)Remote access to the server is not enabled.
2)The remote computer is turned off
3)The remote computer is not available on the network

Make sure the remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled.

I have also made sure everything is enabled and checked the settings, followed the guides to double check. I just don't understand why it suddenly doesn't work, Her coworkers it works fine. It is not an issue on the server she is connecting too.

I've disabled firewalls, uninstalled my Norton software... I've even reformatted my PC completely. It still wont connect when I enter her address. I've completely run out of ideas and my last option was calling Microsoft professional help but pay $200? Don't think so.. If anyone has any advice would be most appreciated!

Is your ISP blocking the port? I have seen this happen when someone says it worked yesterday and is not working today and nothing change on the workstation or the server. Does one of your Wife's co-workers have the same ISP as you? If so and it is working for them then you know it is not that problem.

I have also seen ISPs update the router/modems software or firmware in the background without you knowing and cause this type of problem. -WS

Hello everyone. I'm trying to connect my home PC to my work PC.

Home - Vista Home Premium
Work - Windows 7 Ultimate

Given the two Operating Systems (Ultimate is the one being connected to), this should be possible. I changed the remote settings on my work PC to allow remote connections. I'm now home and trying to connect. When I input my work IP address (which I found with http://whatismyipaddress.com/) and user name and hit Connect, it asks me to enter my credentials. On this credentials screen, it shows my user account for the work computer with the correct login picture, so I know I have a connection.

My user name is already entered, but it still asks me for a password. I don't use a password at work, so I leave it blank and hit OK. It then gives me this error:

"An authentication error has occurred (Code: 0x80090304)."

No idea what this means. Should I try making a login password at work, or should I change some settings around? It's my first post, so sorry if I'm asking about something that was already recently addressed. Thanks in advance!

I phoned a work buddy who is working remotely who said he can ping my work machine no problem.

was told this would be a better forum to ask my question.
I've just upgraded to Windows 8 from Windows 7. The main issue I have with Windows 8 is that the remote desktop client is somehow broken for me. Whenever I use it, it blocks (i.e. I cannot interact with the remote computer) and then I get the pseudo-dialog
box stating reconnecting and it will reconnect and I get back the remote access. It does this all the time (about every few minutes). It looks like the client is dropping the connection and automatically re-establishing it.
Note that when I cannot interact with the remote computer, I can still ping it just fine. So clearly it is not a connection problem. I even have on the same machine a virtual machine machine running Windows XP Pro and in there the remote desktop client from
XP never drops the connection, nor blocks.


Anyone having similar issue or tips on how I could debug this?

I have an interesting challenge with Remote Desktop.

I am connecting via a VPN (using Shrewsoft) to a Windows XP SP3 computer in the UK. The tunnel is created successfully and when I connect using my own personal laptop (Lenovo) I am able to connect and login. My Lenovo is running Windows 7 Professional SP1.

The person I am configuring this connection for is using a Samsung RV511 running Windows 7 Home Basic. Once again the VPN connection is establsihed succesfully using Shrewsoft, however when connecting using Remote Desktop, the connection shows me the remote screen, with the ip address showing at the top, however the login dialogue box does not show. The background colour of the remote screen shows, just no login credentials box.

I have optimised the MTU settings on the computer involved, turned off bitmap caching on the Remote Desktop Connection settings, disabled all firewalls, all anti virus software, all to no avail. The computer is connecting to a DSL router via a wireless connection.

Any suggestions (aside from installing Team Viewer) would help. Thanks

Remote Desktop Connection wants the IP or name of the remote computer to connect to. But suppose the remote computer is behind a router. The router has one WAN IP, say 192.45.63.98, which will be the same for all the computers connected off of that router, (when you google "my ip" from any of them) and then each computer connected off of the router will have a LAN IP, something like 10.0.0.6. So if I want to help the person connected to the 10.0.0.6 computer (and not the person connected at 10.0.0.9) off of this router what do I tell Remote Desktop Connection at my computer to reach them?

My problem is this:

I can't run remote desktop connection in my current situation. I'm at home and I'd like to be able to do this.

I have a laptop that's fairly new. It's an HP Pavilion dv6 with an AMD Turioin II P520 dual-core processor that's 2.30 Ghz and it's running Windows 7 Home Premium, the 64-bit version.

I have two computers I'd like to control using my laptop: A Gateway GT5692 running an AMD Phenom 8450 Triple-Core Processor 2.10 GHz that's got the 64-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium and a HP SR501P with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor 4200+ 2.20 GHz running the 32-bit version of Windows Vista Home Basic.

All are tied to a router. The laptop runs wireless and the two desktops have a wired lan. All connect to the internet through the router tied to a DSL modem.

I can control the computers using Windows Remote Assistance but not with Windows Remote Desktop connection. What's up with that? http://b.tsgstatic.com/smilies/frown.gif

Hi. I just viewed Kari Finn's clearly explained Remote Desktop Connection on Win10 and how to connect to remote computer, thank you for that. Good job! In my case though, I use Win XP Home edition. Do I have to have Win XP Pro edition to connect on RDC to Win 10 host using Hyper-V virtual creation?
Also, if that is the case, how can I reboot my remote computer XP OS and get onto the Start Up Menu page? The keyboard command is released to my Win 10 host computer on start up and I don't have access to keyboard commands (such as F8) until Win XP has been fully booted up. How do I access that Start Up menu page otherwise?
This would be helpful for me to know. Thanks.

A:Remote Desktop Connection Explained - Question remote XP?

Hi Hibs, welcome to the Ten Forums.

You simply cannot use Windows XP Home as remote host, meaning you cannot connect to it using the Remote Desktop Connection. There are some hacks around the Internet but I very strongly advice against them.

(From Remote Desktop: frequently asked questions)
A workaround, in case you have or can find a valid Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate license is to install Windows 7 on a Hyper-V virtual machine, then install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode on that virtual machine. Works perfectly giving you Windows XP Pro SP3.

If the mouse and keyboard are released by the Windows XP vm back to host, you simply need to bring the pointer on the vm and click to get them back to vm. The F8 keyboard shortcut when booting XP up works then totally normally bringing up the advanced options boot menu:


To release the mouse and keyboard back to host, press CTRL + ALT + LEFT ARROW.

I can connect to my Laptop from my Desktop using Remote Desktop Connection but when I try to connect to my Desktop from my Laptop I get an error stating that Network Level Authentication is not supported on the machine I am connecting from, i.e. the Laptop.
Both the Laptop and the Desktop are running Windows 7 Ultimate.
This used to work fine and I am unable to find what has changed.
I have even tried doing a Repair Install of Windows 7 Ultimate on the Laptop but still have the same issue.
Does anyone have any ideas, short of reinstalling Windows 7 Ultimate from scratch?
Thanks in advance
Kevin

I've recently installed wireless at home and run 2 pc's on it, accessing the web via Comcast broadband. All works well when accessing my office PC via XP's 'Remote access web connection'. I can transfer files between office & home and print to machines that are configured on the host (office) to LPT & COM ports.
Last week I replaced my ageing Epson C80 home printer with a new HP Deskjet 5850 wireless printer. It works great and I can print from my 2 home pc's via wireless.
What I can't figure out is how to configure it on my office host pc so that it can see it via RAWC. I've tried adding a port with the printers IP Address but that doesn't work. Have also tried HP's web sights as well as Wxp's but I guess the wireless printer is too new. Any ideas anyone ?

Hello BEJ,

Unchecking the Allow Remote Assistance connections to this computer box, and selecting the Don't allow connections to this computer options in the "First" section of the tutorial below will prevent this for you.

Okay I have seen some machines where when you remote desktop into them from a single screen machine to a dual screen machine it will shuffle over all apps to the primary screen and you can keep working. I have seen others that will have dual screens and it will leave the app open on the toolbar but you can't get to it because it is on the 2nd screen and htings don't get shuffled over. Now I have a 3rd type of behavior and I need to figure out why PCs are not all behaving the same.

This new symptom is connecting into a Vista machine that has 2 screens. All the apps themseleves stay on the screen they were left on but the sidebar does squish to the First screen.

Some machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen both apps show on screen 1.

Other machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen show app on screen 1 and app 2 shows in toolbar but you have to close it and reopen it to get it on screen 1.

New symptom Vista machines -
Dual screen app 1 on screen 1 and app 2 on screen 2
Remote desktop with single screen show app on screen 1 and app 2 shows in toolbar but you have to close it and reopen it to get it on screen 1 but sidebar.exe shuffles to screen 1.

Ultimately I would like them all to behave like the top option but I don't know where you force this behavior.

Hey,

I've been trying forever now to RDP from a Windows 7 computer into a Windows 10 computer from two remote locations. Somethings i have to mention that might help:
I already allowed the connection on my Windows 10 computer through the "Remote" tab
Windows 10 computer is on a "Private" network (Cannot verify if the Windows 7 computer is)
Allowed literally every rule through the firewall for RDP (Windows 7 computer is allowed for public and private)
Using only the IP address of the computer (Windows 10 computer)

I'm really open to any ideas. Can anyone help me out?

I have windows xp home edition on both of my computers, and they do have a remote desktop program, but ive found out that windows xp pro actually has a better version of it that will actually work. I cant get the windows xp home version of it to work. Is there anyone that knows of a free remote desktop program, or if someone would be able to send the windows xp pro version of the remote desktop program.

A:Free Remote Desktop Program, or how to get windows remote desktop to work

XP Home has "Remote Assistance", while XP Pro has both "Remote Desktop", as well as "Remote assistance". You can download from Microsoft, a Remote Desktop "add on" which will enable your computer to become the "client" but not the "server".

can you provide some details about what you've done to get "remote assistance " up and running?

hi,
im new to teaching in a school in birmigham.Were currently using the rm network But dont have a technician at the moment because he has been fired. so does anybody know how to connect to an Rm network from home
thanks,
james

A:Rm Software Remote Connection

Evansj, I suggest that you try logmein.com and see if that won't do what you want. It is free and they have a pay version but the free one works great. You have to install it on the machine that you want to control remotely but there are a few othes out there. Otherwise, the built in Remote Desktop Program works great as long as your remote system has a fixed IP and you have the security permissions set properly.

Can anyone recommend a remote connection software where I can control my desktop thought the web and auto-boot when I try to assess my PC. I want this go my pc goes not have to be on and logged in all the time I would like the software to be free. Any Ideals Thanks 03humphrec Eastry/STS Pc WizardModerator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:Remote Connection Software

http://www.logmein.com - has a free version, but you'll have to look around for it a bit.pcAnywhere by Symantec. Costs, but it's pretty slick.Remote Desktop built into Windows - gave me too much trouble, so I don't use it myself.As for auto-boot, you'll have to look into the "wake on" features that your motherboard supports - and then match your remote control solution to that.

I just got a new laptop and usually connected through a wireless connection. I have recently started using remote desktop connection. I have connected twice successfully. Both times it was when I was connected through a Cad-5. Once at a friends house and another at my families place. I have never connected while the laptop has been wireless. Do I need to do something different to connect remotely when I am using the laptop wirelesslly?
 

A:Remote Desktop Connection With Wireless Connection

Nope.
Cat-5 or Wireless is still a LAN, and the RDP(RDC) does not see it as any different, it may just be a little slower.
