  • If your work PC only has one monitor, when you use remote desktop to connect from a dual monitor system, you will only get a single monitor in the RDP session. If you have two monitors on the remote system and one on the local system, you will get a display of both monitors from the remote system on your single monitor local system.
    I'm not sure what your problem is or what you mean by your last sentence about Vista and Windows 7. The OS is of no importance as long as Live Mesh supports running on that OS.

    If I am misunderstanding your scenario, please post back and drop the insults if you desire assistance. Even if you only wish to provide feedback, insults, especially offensive ones, are not adding to your credibility.
