Preferred Solution: Remote Desktop Software Install

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: Remote Desktop Software Install

You either copy the file to your computer or hopefully you have a mapped network drive to that server where the install file is.

My dad is in his 90's and very computer illiterate. He's had a computer for a few years that he uses for email and web browsing.

In the past, when he runs into problems or has a question, I've been able to connect to his machine using Remote Desktop Connection.

I just bought him a Dell computer with WinXP (Home edition) for Christmas, and I'm unable to install Remote Desktop Connection on it, because it tells me that Remote Assistance is already installed. Thing is, I don't WANT to use remote assistance. It's an extraordinarily complicated process for a guy pushing a century old. With Remote Desktop Connection, he just turns his machine on and I can connect.

I've looked everywhere, but I can't figure out how to uninstall Remote Assistance.

Does anyone know how to do that, or is there a way that I can install Remote Desktop while Remote Assistance is there?

Thanks for any help you can give.

A:Toss remote assist - install remote desktop?

Correct me if i am wrong anyone... i am only learning about things like this myself

As i understand remote desktop connection is only the client side package which when installed would allow your dad to connect to your PC and not you connect to your dads, so the package would not be any use to you anyway, you need your dads PC to act as a server not a client.

Also as i understand, remote desktop server software comes as an Windows XP Professional version feature only ... which version of windows does your dad have ? if it is the Home Edition then im not sure if you can get this to work the way you want, you might have to look at third party software solutions, from the top of my head a program like VNC server would do it which i have only used briefly in the past. http://www.realvnc.com/what.html << think this is the website

Hope this has helped.

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.

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

I've been using Gotomypc and Logmein and once in awhile Teamviewer over the years. Gotmypc just doubled their annual price - ack! They did offer me a discount bringing it back down to $20 a month but still.... It's causing me to look at my alternatives.

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).

Hey guys

I use Logmein, and PC Anywhere remote software for remoting my PCs between 2 homes. But I find them too slow when remoting software that has moderate graphics load.

I want to establish a connection between my 2 sites (London and Devon) that will give me the fastest remote access, and I dont care about what it cost as long as its not ridiculous!

If it helps to buy 2 routers with built in VPN capabilities I will buy them to create a VPN tunnel, if this will improve remote access speeds.

I dont mind paying for the remote software either.

So what would be the best solution - at reasonable cost?

After A little research, I have read that RDP is the quickest for when remoting graphics intensive programs. But these articles were dated a few years, is RDP still the quickest? One of my PC is Windows 7 Home, shall I upgrade it to Professional if I want it to be a RDP host? Or is their seperate RDP software available that I can install instead of forking out ?100 for Windows 7 Professional upgrade? If using RDP on Windows 7 Prof is the fastest then I will buy the upgrade.

And if creating the VPN tunnel will improve speeds further, then I pose that as another question in the Network threads

Cheers

A:What is the fastest remote desktop software for graphics work?

It seems, the graphics card of the host plays a part in speed of graphics refresh during remote sessions. Something to do with rasterizing. The pc host had on board graphics and scores just 3.4 in the Windows Experience index performance guage in Windows 7. So perhaps I need to also buy a dedicated graphics card.

First off I'm new here, don't know my way around yet so if this is posted in the wrong area, I'm sorry.

I want to install an HP printer (officejet 6210) on my computer at my office which is 800 miles away. I connect to my office computer using Remote Desktop. Both machines are running XP pro.

I have the printer connected and installed on my home computer. But when I start Remote Desktop I can't see the printer (I do have RD set to "bring printers").

In searching for an answer, I get the feeling RD will not see the printer because it's connected using a USB cable and for some reason it just doesn't see it.

In the past I have physically taken my printer to my office, installed it and then brought it back home and then RD will see it. So I need to get this new printer installed somehow without actually connecting it to my office computer. I have the software copied to my office and when I try to install it (connected using RD) it aborts when I don't have the printer to connect. Is there anyway to "trick" it to think the printer is connected or some way to force the driver install without connecting the printer.

If all else fails, I'll have to wait until I at my office again in a few months, then take the printer and physically connect it and install the software.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

I normally am long winded, but I'm so frustrated with this I'm going to just lay out the facts.

My home PC is plugged into our DIR-655. My work laptop connected wirelessly, and was part of my work Domain. Home PC is the default WORKGROUP. Out of the box the remote desktop worked like a dream. ( Both PCs ran XP Pro SP3 ).

Both got slow and clogged so had Windows XP Pro reinstalled. Remote Desktop wouldn't work. After much searching and following instructions, I gave up and reinstalled XP on my host PC. Laptop was then able to connect .... for a few days. Updates came down, installed, now it won't connect again.

Here is where I'm at:

HOST PC ( wired )

XP Pro SP3
Firewall OFF ( still have the LAN connection as being open to RDC )
Terminal Services is verified running
Netstat -an shows 3389 is listening
Can RDC to the laptop no problem

LAPTOP ( wireless )

XP Pro SP3
Firewall OFF
Termianl Services is verified running
Netstat -an shows 3389 is listening
RDC doesn't even get an error, withing 1 second of click connect, its just reset back to the main RDC screen.

I don't know how more wide open this could be and still not work. I've exhausted my attempts, everything that should be running, seems to be, the port is listening, and the firewall is outright off. I can ping the PC from the LAPTOP no problem.

Any thoughts?

** I've also started to roll back the updates but none seemed to help the situation **

Hi guys,

i have a question about remote connection, but i don't know exactly what kind of solution i'm looking for...

i have a desktop with quad-cpu and much bigger memory, and i have another laptop which is old and slow. My thinking is to make a server on the desktop, so that the laptop could share the cpu time and memory from desktop.

That is to say: there could be two persons in front of both computers, they log in using own username and they should not interrupt each others work, but all the programs should run on the desktop computer.

So Remote Desktop, VNC or TeamViewer etc. don't really match my needs...

I don't really know what we call this technology, but i know that citrix have this kind of business solution, what i wanna know is if there are any usable free or inexpensive solutions for personal/non-commercial use?

Thanks a lot!

Btw., my desktop is running Windows 7 Pro 64bit and Laptop is running Windows XP Pro 32bit.

A:Which Solution: Remote Desktop? Virtual Desktop? Remote Terminal?

There may be alternatives to Citrix, but the concept is basically to access a remote desktop on server where you run applications installed on server. If the performance is adequate you will gain in bandwidth and licensing costs, but the scenario you describe implies that the laptop should somehow share the resources of the server, physically(?)...

I am currently unaware of any inexpensive "citrix" solutions but I would think that is what you are after. Logging on the server, starting an app on server, but managing it on the laptop.

Have you looked in to a HDD and RAM upgrade of the Laptop?

Hi all,
I am trying to connect to a remote server but all I get is the error that the Remote Desktop Gateway is not available. I have tried accessing the same remote server from another PC (windows 8.1) and it is working.
I tried connecting to other remote server and get same error. I have not usde remote desktop before until now.
It seems only this particular laptop is having this problem.

Hi

I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7.

I would like to use remote desktop to do the following if possible.

1. I would like to know if there is a way, to not lock the host machine that you are connected to?, so the user can see what you are doing?.

2. Is there a way that Remote desktop can be used without logging off the logged in account?, or just use the logged in account?

I would like to use Remote Desktop for a remote helpdesk solution if possible. If anyone knows how to do this things I am asking it would be the people on this board.

A:Using Remote Desktop instead of Remote Assistance for remote helpdesk?

Might be possible to do it. I think you need some sort of security.

I'm about to setup a new desktop for myself for the first time in 7 years. It'll probably last me for another 7. Does anyone have any suggestions on things to add to / remove from / substitute from this list of software to install? Some of these have been with me for 14 years, so I would not be surprised if there are better versions out there. I mainly plan on using the computer for Reddit, Youtube, Starcraft, music, occasional photo editing and spreadsheets. You can pretty much get the picture from the following list of software. Thank you all for any help.
AVG Antivirus
Spybot
CC Cleaner
Firefox with Adblocker
Driver Booster
Game Booster (temporarily shuts down unneeded tasks)
Drop box
Nero (burning software)
Cloudberry (accessing Amazon Glacier)
Starcraft 2
Microsoft Office Starter Pack (I'd like full version, but this is free)
VLC Player
Kodak EasyShare Software (I use this for cleaning up photos. Got it in 2002. I feel like there must be a better option out there)
IrFan View (for more advanced image editing. Infrequently used)
Final question, would there be any advantage to installing Malwarebytes in addition to Spybot, AVG and CCCLeaner, or is that redundant?

Driver Updater Warning!I see that you are using a "Driver Updater" program. I strongly advise you to uninstall it/them and to never use such programs again since they can damage your system at a point where a reinstallation of Windows might be needed.Drivers are "middlemen" between your OS (Windows) and your hardware (computer). They control and facilitate the interaction between Windows and hardware components, to deliver a "message", nothing more;Having all of your drivers up to date, all the time, will not improve the performance of your system, nor your computer. You cannot increase the hardware performance of a component over the current capabilities it have;Driver updates are released to fix a bug or an issue with a previous release of that driver. Not everyone with the same drivers will experience the issue, so if you are having no problems with the drivers you are running, you don't need to update them. "If it's not broken, don't fix it";You can download drivers for free from your computer/laptop manufacturers website, or from the hardware component manufacturers website. You don't need to pay for any of them, if you are being asked to pay for drivers it is likely a scam;Only drivers from the computer/laptop manufacturers website, or the hardware component manufacturers website are considered official (legitimate and working). You should not download drivers from anywhere else;Driver Updaters are a scam, they try to convince you that you need these programs in order t... Read more

Ive followed the instructions to a T, & cannot get a remote access connection to my computer using the "Microsoft remote desktop connection" app for iOS. Ive watched youtube videos and followed other directions only to no avail. When I signed up for internet & installed the modem/router(s), the first thing i did was alter my routers default wireless gateway from a 192.168.x.x to my own gateway for security reasons. I also changed the default web interface login credentials. So i am familiar with the web UI of routers & I have spent many hours looking up most of the options that can be configured in the web UI of the many routers I have used & I dont think it has to do with the web UI, I think its something that involves my PC settings. I have another remote desktop app that flawlessly connects to my PC & is extremely fluid in its access, but its a third party app on an inactive andriod device. I'd really like to use the "official" Microsoft remote desktop connection app on my active iOS device &, just as important, know & understand what is preventing access to my computer with this app. I also use the "mobile mouse" app as a remote mouse & keyboard for my computer & its on my active iOS device. So any help is much appreciated

A:remote desktop connect issue via MS remote desktop app

You have to be able to open the ports for RDP on your router/gateway, along with if you have a Dynamic IP that may change, have to use a Dynamic DNS option like OpenDNS. You would really be better off using Teamviewer.

Is there anyway of getting Remote Desktop to work like other remote desktop programs where it doesn't require logging on as the users themselves but to use an admin account to login to the users current active sessions?
Kind regards,

Installed a wireless network at my sisters house about a year ago. HP desktop pc (win7), Dlink router, Comcast Internet cable modem, and (1) toshiba Satellite notebook pc (win7). About a week ago, the mobo on the hp fried, and my sister doesn't want to replace it. She wants to keep the notebook only. I can install the ethernet cable directly into the toshiba, or (I believe) continue using it wirelessly without the desktop, but either way, should I re-install the software that came from Dlink directly onto the notebook? I believe the answer is yes, but would like some advice. Thanks.
 

A:Desktop died, need to re-install router software?

I have never installed software that comes with a router, when used with a cable modem. You should be able to configure the router settings using the routers web interface.

i cannot install blackberry desktop software
it says
error 1321 the installer has insufficient privileges to modify the file c:/ program files (x86)/common files/ research in motion/shared/applications/mediasyncmobile/net_rim_bb_sddagent.cod

A:Blackberry Desktop software install Problem

Try right-clicking the installation file and choose Run as administrator.
I believe that software is delivered as a self-extracting file, so you may have to run that first to extract the setup files, then right-click the main setup executable file from those extracted and choose Run as administrator.

What is the proper process for installing the Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager v7x (by ACCESS) on Vista 64-bit? I have Vista Home Premium x64.

I've heard rumor that the best way is to promote a non-priviledged user to ADMINISTRATOR and have that user install using 32-bit compatibility mode and perform an initial hotsync of their handheld device. Once that is done the user can then be demoted to a normal user account and successfully HotSync from that point forward. I'm not sure if this process is the same if the handheld device (PDA or SmartPhone) is Windows Mobile or Palm OS.

Does this sound like a proper installation/setup process? Are all the steps necessary? Should any steps be added (e.g. rebooting, starting/stopping services, etc.)? Can anyone explain why each step is necessary? Does this process need to be repeated for every Vista account on the computer?

In addition, I know that ACCESS has not (and will not) provided a 64-bit USB driver for any current Palm OS Garnet and older devices, so direct connected HotSync is not possible (Bluetooth, IP, IrDA have been proven to work). I'm not looking to solve that issue. Just the software installation to Vista x64.

A:Palm Desktop HotSync Manager v7.x software install on 64-bit

I will be watching the thread as I have the same question. Have a new 64-bit OS and need to get Hotsync running on it so I can sync with Outlook 2007. Beginning to wonder if I should just dump Outlook and use Palm's Desktop!
