Remote desktop connection software or Win7

Q: Remote desktop connection software or Win7

I'm looking for compatible software that would be extremely user-friendly for someone who is computer illiterate. I'm trying to connect to a friend's desktop to help them with some Windows 7 issues, but they can't seem to follow directions too well and they live a few states away.

I'm not even sure if it exists, but the program would ideally install on their computer and mine and make it very simple to remotely connect to them.

Thanks in advance. I'm currently using Win7 Ultimate 64 bit and they're using Win7 Home Premium 32 bit.

Preferred Solution: Remote desktop connection software or Win7

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.)

I have become the go-to guy for all my father-in-law's buddies in FL (I'm in VA). I am constantly on the phone trying to talk 80-something neophites through simple fixes - I have a new respect for Help Desk techs.

I want to be able to connect remotely to their computers and do the fixes my self - most of the things I could do in 3 minutes, but takes me 50 minutes (and still no joy) because I can't see their screen and they don't know what I'm saying.

What is the best method of connecting (using RDC?)? And where can I get the informaiton to put together VERY (very, very) simple instructions so they can set up their desktops for me to access.

Their OS's range from Vista to Win 7 Ultimate.

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).

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.

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

And when I bring up system properties on my laptop, it has the “Remote Assistance” dialog but not the dialog for “Remote Desktop”. I viewed this on another computer with a video titled “Accessing another computer with Remote Desktop Connection”.

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?

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 ?

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.

Hi All - I am new here and I have a very strange problem.

I have a network of Windows 7 PC's and one XP machine that all users occasionally use for a certain task. I have 8 Windows 7 PC's, and one of them (PC A shall we say) causes the Windows XP PC to BSOD and reboot, but only after a certain 2 other PC's have last been remoted into it (PC's B and C). If I get one of the Windows 7 PC users who do not use PC's B and C to log in after PC's B or C have been using it, then PC A can log into it over RDP without issue. PC A can also log in and out over and over again without issue.

Things I have tried so far:

Updated NVIDEA graphics drivers on PC A.
Removed the Terminal Services Cache on PC A.
Ruled out user accounts as being the issue by getting users of PC's B and C to remote in with their credentials but using PC A (logged into PC A using PC A's users credentials still).

Checked the event viewer on XP machine and found a BSOD related error. XP PC is fully up to date with SP3 installed.

Does anyone have any idea?

Many thanks,

Adam
 

A:Very odd Remote Desktop Problem Win7 to XP

I have not any real idea.
HOWEVER is the BSOD error always the same and what is it.
Before anyone can really offer a suggestion we would need the full STOP code and parameters.
If you do not have them in the event viewer I suggest you disable restart on failure and then cause the crash, so you may obtain the required details.

A:Win7 Remote Desktop vs LogMeIn or others

I started off with RDP and it was good at the most part, but I then discovered logmein as my workplace used remotely anywhere/ Remotely Anywhere was developed by logmein. It just had so many features such as task killing, cpu usage, access to services menu, creating new local accounts etc... We used it basically to support our environment at work. Sadly due to licensing cost restraints, our IT CIO decided to move over UltraVNC after additional 60000 PCs were added to our network. I beleve UltraVNC has a open licence, so therefore its essentially free.

It's good for an internal environment, but for an external environment, you then have to deal with client installs, port opening on router, and changing WAN IPs if that's an issue.

Logmein pro is very much like remotely anywhere. Their features are exactly the same and I honestly can't tell the difference. Sadly, the pro version has a subscription fee.

I personally use the free version. Some of the features that put this over RDP.

-Able to screen share to assist others. RDP does not
-Able to reboot the computer if the GUI is frozen. RDP does not
-Able to boot into safe mode. RDP does not
-Logmein provides list logmein enabled pcs on their on-line system. RDP -- keep a notebook and track it your safe.

Regarding WIN7 HOME to host a REMOTE DESKTOP CONNECTION:

All of MS literature says it cannot be done & your website indicates it can via 3rd party software, but I stumbled onto this @ answers.microsoft.com:

Simply change the fDenyTSConnections value in the ?HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server? hive to ?0? from ?1? and you can RDP into the system. One has always been able to do this. The options available in the UI reflect which editions include support for the feature. You can enable RDP on Home if you wish, it just isn?t supported.

One can also set the UserAuthentication value to 1 in the ?HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp? to require NLA if you wish.

Is this BOGUS? I have attempted it & no luck. Maybe I am missing something?

A:Remote desktop WIN7 HOME PREM?

Let's start with the obvious. What you're trying to do is illegal, it violates the license of Windows you've bought. Microsoft sells various editions of Windows and each one has more features that the lesser ones, but they're also more expensive. It's a way to segment the market. From Windows Home Premium the Remote Desktop server has been cut off of it (only the client remains), but you have to upgrade to Professional to get it, among other things. That's the way MS makes money "if you want features, pay me more".

Now for the technical side. Not sure about the method you posted, but I'm sure that in some way it's totally doable. Remember that the editions of Windows are just artificial restrictions over a single code base, just a few registry changes, some setting and maybe missing files or something else hidden out there, but the reality is that Windows 7 Starter all the way up to Windows 2008R2 Datacenter are exactly the same program with features artificially stripped out.
So, possible, yes, I'm pretty sure it's possible, but no idea how. Even then, remember that this forum don't support illegal things, so you won't get it here anyway.

Hello,

I just tried remote desktop in Win7 (remote = Win7 too). I saw it supports Direct3D! Wow! That's soo cool! Now the remote connections will be much better to use!

It's very important for me because I'm working from home and I see the benefit of using the remote desktop instead of third party application (NetSupport).

There is one thing left. I used the option "Use all my monitors", I got 2 monitors, it works! But, Direct3D (Aero) isn't working anymore.

Does anybody here have any idea if the Direct3D will work with multiple monitors in the final release? If not, that would be very sad.

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.

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...

Hi,
I have a pc running on Win XP in office. As part of testing, i had to try and install an activex control packaged in a .cab file on a Windows 7 and Internet explorer 8 from an application we built. I connect to this Windows 7 machine using the remote desktop connection from my PC running on XP. But the install DOES NOT happen on the Windows 7 remote desktop. It just refreshes the screen and nothing else happens.
If i try to install the same thing on another Win 7 PC ( to which i connect directly and not through remote desktop ), i am able to install the activex control.
This issue is hurting me bad. Can you please help me with this and provide me a solution ?
I can give you more details if needed.

I ran into this too... there are several things Remote Desktop doesn't let you do... like intalling unsigned software, changing services, etc. ... you know, the stuff a hacker might do....

I have tried Splashtop, RealVNC, LogMeIn, and GoToMyPC and none of them seem to replicate the remote desktop ability to extend the desktop to dual monitors at full resolution (many of them scraping only the laptop's low resolution).

Is there any other 3rd party tool? I've spend a lot of time looking and feel stuck. The only alternative is a very expensive dual head KVM switch.

The laptop is a corporate image that I can't change, even though I have access to Ultimate licenses.

A:Need dual monitor remote desktop to a Win7 Pro computer

So I think I found a viable workaround. While I couldn't use mstc /multimon with Win7 Pro I can use mstc /span. This gives me a silly desktop across both screens of 3840x1080.

I'm using 2 pieces of software to make this work more or less like mstc /multimon would.

1. SplitView - gives most of the functionality you need for free: keeps windows from appearing in the middle (many windows would appear there by default), stops windows from spanning both monitors, allows snapping the window to the top of the screen to maximize to one monitor.

2. Divvy - allows you to define a custom grid of snap areas. I went for 1 row by 4 columns. You can then assign shortcuts to these snap areas. For monitor 1 I chose win+alt+left and win+alt+right to snap to the left/right split on monitor 1. For monitor 2 I chose alt+left and alt+right to snap to the left/right split on monitor 2.

This sufficiently emulates the true multimon option without needing to spend €300 on a KVM switch.

ok i give up, honest i did rtfm, well google, but not finding anything that says definite yes or no, "can i rdc from winxp to win7 home premium?"
i can rdc from the win7 to my xppro, but trying to get back from the xp pro machine to the win7 not connecting
did all the enabling in win 7 system, have all win firewall disabled, using comodo instead and opened up the standard win rdc port in comodo, one thing i noticed the dhcp public ip for the win 7 machine has a 255.255.224.0 subnet, instead of the usual 255.255.255.0, don't think that should make a diff, but just putting that out there

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.

I would like to run my desktop PC remotely from my laptop. The desktop runs Win 7 Home Premium so does not support the Win 7 Remote Desktop feature. Can someone recommend a 3rd party software package? My laptop runs Win 7 Pro.

Are there any free (or very affordable) programs or services that allows simple remote desktop control (besides LogMeIn, Remote Desktop or RealVNC)? I'm thinking of running a small tech support biz on the side and I need something that'll help me gain remote access/control of client's computers that's easy for them to setup.

Thanks in advance

Most services will charge for commercial use. Be sure to check licensing so you're in compliance.

hey guys,im looking for some software to remote desktop to my other pc from my laptop. im currently using logmein free, whichs works great, i like the features such as being able to change resolution to match the host pc. the only draw back is that it runs through the internet, and so its a bit slow and laggy, but also it will no doubt use up my internet allowance from my ISP.so is there any other software that works like logmein, but is designed to work over a lan (wirelessly). at work we use the xp pro remote desktop, but unfortunately i dont have xp pro on these machines.free would be an advantage too ;)cheers, deanEdit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Id highly recomend teamviwer.
TeamViewer Download

You download the Full version and they download the quick support version just underneath.
The quick version only allows some one with the full version(you) to access there computer (with the ID and Passwrod of course) and once it closes it leaves nothing behind except the .exe file and (i think) a log.
Neither of which will be easily available,they will have to be looked for.
