Cannot activate Remode Desktop Connection in Vista Home Premium

Posted: 04-11-2008, 08:25 AM
Hello,
In System Properties/Remote I do not have the "Remote Desktop" section, so I
cannot configure it. In all tutorials about this topic that section should be
active, but in my case it is not. I have only the "Remote assistance" section.
What can I do to use Remote desktop connection?

Thanks.

That means your running Vista Home Premium or Home Basic edition which can
*NOT* act as a Remote Desktop (RDC) host/server. You can verify what version
of Vista your running by going to "Start -> Run" and typing the command
winver. Look at using an alternative like UltraVNC as an alternative if you
need to remotely access/control the PC.

Vista Home Premium or Home Basic edition can act as a RDC client if your
trying to remotely access/control a Vista Ultimate/Business or XP Pro/MCE
PC.
