Remote Access: Windows XP client trying to access Windows 7 remote computer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I access my home computers remotely.  Accessing computers running XP is not problem.  I cannot access computers running Windows 7.

    Does anyone know when this will be resolved, since Windows 7 is being so aggressively implemented?

    It already works (I've done it myself), so there is nothing to "fix" (meaning it's a problem with your configuration, not the OS).  What message do you get when to try to connect to the computer in your LAN?  What version of Windows 7 are you trying to connect to?

  • What version of Win7 are you running? Remote access to the client desktops is only available on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise en Ultimate editions.

  • its "Home Premium" Windows 7.  Guess that explains it.  "Not supported on this operating system."
