Preferred Solution: Home Premium Remote Desktop to XP

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.)

A: Home Premium Remote Desktop to XP

Also, I can access shared folders on the computer running XP from my Vista laptop... in case that matters.

I also downloaded and used TeamViewer, and although it worked I was only able to take control of the XP machine if I'd already logged in, which isn't what I need.

Thanks in advance.

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!

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.

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?

Thanks!

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.

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

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.

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 :-)

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, 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.

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:

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.

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.

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

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, I live in Surprise AZ and would say I have a intermediate knowledge of computers. However, I have a virus that I do not know how to deal with.

I am working on a desktop PC with Win 7 Home Premium installed. I was working in Quicken last night and it started running very slow. I had installed some software during the day that allows people on a network to access songs from my computer and vice versa. I went into my msconfig settings to turn off some of the programs running in the background and restarted, thinking that might be why I was running slow. Rebooted my computer and noticed that there were two red X's on the task bar icons in the lower right hand corner for the audio service and there was a message to solve a PC issue in the Action Center. The Windows Security Center can't be started and neither can the Audio Service and I do not have access to the internet or my printer. My computer tech friend, who referred me to this site, suggested that the virus might have checked, in internet options, the proxy settings, so he instructed me to turn them off. There turned out to be no check next to proxy settings in the Lan Settings so I left that alone. I also have MS Outlook where I use Fed Ex to ship business... Read more

Hi all... I'm usually pretty comfortable with networking support, but recently got stuck on a project for a client of mine, and could use a little help.

First, the rather simple goal: to be able for an office employee to use MS Remote Desktop at home to access a work computer.

As I understand it, in order to use RDC from an off-site computer, one will first need to establish a VPN connection to the office network (RDC has been tested within the office environment and works fine)

The office I am supporting has an AT&T broadband connection with 8 static IP's (5 usable) running off of a Netopia 3347-02 (firmware 7.81r2). The Netopia gateway is assigned to 7x.xxx.xxx.30 and the computer I have set up as the VPN server (by doing basically this http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/xp_vpn_server.htm) is assigned to 7x.xxx.xxx.20.

I would like to simply VPN to the 7x.xxx.xxx.20 machine, and then RDC into that and 3-4 other machines once on VPN. I have accessed the Netopia settings and set up pinholes for port 1723 on TCP, but repeatedly get an "Error 800" when trying to establish the Windows VPN.

From a topic at another forum (http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r19949739-Help-with-3347NWG006-remote-desktopVPN-issue) I attempted to set up a pinhole for PPTP, but like the user in that topic, do not have such an option in my firmware.

My operating system is xp home edition and I unwittingly deleted my remote desktop program. It was only used to access a computer that ran on xp pro, so there wasn't a problem using it, and I don't need anything else fancy, just my old RtD.

Unfortunately, I don't know how exactly to reinstall it. Any help would be appreciated!

Earlier today i disocvered how to set up a remote desktop. I connected my laptop to my server and an employee's computer easily/quickly with no problems.. but i can't do the same when i'm @ my home network.

Please note. that when i was able to connect i was on the work network, but i was connected wirelessly.. but it was using the same IP "family" if you will as the server and the other workstation

I am wondering if there is something i need to configure to get this fixed?

I have been using Remote Desktop on XP Home edition for nearly three months. I have been told that Remote Desktop on XP Home edition will expire after 90 days of use. Is this true and how do I tell how many days I have left? I use it to connect to work daily so I can't afford to wait until it expires (if indeed it does). Thanks for any help.

Why not use UltraVNC, it never expires and works on any version of Windows.

Is there an easy way to remote access a 7 system from XP within a home network? (No 3rd party software plz)

I hear people are having problems with remote desktop away from home, but is it any different doing it between 2 pcs in the same house?

Can I prevent people outside the network from attempting remote connection?

(EDIT: nvm, I was thinking of putting the remote PC to sleep when not connected, and waking it up to save power. Looks like you can't even wake up the remote PC remotely...)

A:Remote desktop within home network?

I know you have said no 3rd party software but I've been using TeamViewer v7 for years set to accept LAN connections exclusively and have complete control over three other LAN connected computers, including XP. I can't see how TV could be improved upon for this situation.

Hi,

Do anyone of you have a VNC, Remote Desktop or similar remote access setup at your home ?

Has there been any attacks?

What can be done to secure it ?

Any way to add Remote Desktop (host) to W7 home?
I upgraded to home premium and now found that I can not remote desktop TO this pc
Obviously I could upgrade from home to PRO but didn't know if I can just "add" RDP to this home PC at all
I realize there are 3rd party software vendors I can use (think I saw VNC, mesh, go2mtg, etc)
Any thoughts, suggestions?

A:Any way to add Remote Desktop (host) to W7 home?

Hi there
NO -- this is a BIG disappointment to zillions of people who get computers loaded with W7 Home from stores.

It's almost a universal requirement these days that people want to access HOME computers from the Internet / Work etc etc.

There are "3rd party options" like "Logmein" etc but some work places now block these sites and ports and aren't in any case a true alternative for RDP.

There were "get arounds" in Windows XP HOME (XP PRO always allowed RDP as a Server rather than a client) but they seemed to have locked down W7 a bit better now.

I'm sure allowing RDP in W7 Home wouldn't have been a big deal for MS -- it's certainly IMO needed.

For Linux VNC is a good solution -- whether you could use this on Windows as a server I don't know.

Cheers

I have just found that Vista Home Basic does not include "Remote Desktop". Does anyone know of a way to add it to Basic? I do not want to use a third party system if possible. I have setup a VPN network okay, but would like to add Remote Desktop to the system.

I wish to use MS Remote desktop to control my home desktop. My home desktop is setup with a four computer LAN. The LAN is connected to the internet through a router. I wish to use my laptop, on the road, to connect to my desktop at home. I have been told i will have to use some Dynamic DNS software and servers. Is this so? If so any suggestions?

Hello, I need help in knowing if I can use Remote Desktop in Windows 10 Home to log into a remote computer from my PC.

I purchased a PC with Windows 10 Home not realizing that I will have to log into a PC in another location. I am told that to use Remote Desktop I would have to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, and I would not even see Remote Desktop in Windows 10 Home. But I checked and the Remote Desktop app is there and there is a place to enter the remote computer name.

I don't want to have to upgrade to the Pro version of Windows 10 unless I have to. I will only be logging into the remote PC from my PC, not the other way around.

Thanks very much for your help.

A:Can I use Remote Desktop with Windows 10 Home?

Yes, you can use it as a client that connects to another computer, but not as the target of a connection request.

In other words, you can DTP out but not in.
