    Can you launch it from Start menu or from the run command "MSTSC"

      Which version of Windows Vista are you using? Not all of them HAVE remote desktop capability.

        yeah, like say Vista home edition. this doesnt include any RDP client, and you'll have to install VNC. i dont know if grabbing the mstsc will help with Vista home.

        good luck!

          I thought every version of Vista can with Remote Desktop but only Business and Ultimate had the ability to enable RDC connections to the workstations itself.

            Michael is quite correct (as usual). Vista Home Premium can connect via Remote Desktop but does not have the option to be connected too. Don't know without looking it up what other flavours of Vista are missing Remote Desktop.

            Was interesting that Remote Assistance is available with Home Premium as I though RDP was used with connecting via this method.

              thank you for correcting what i was trying to say. you are correct... i just know that it lacks the full functionality of RDP like XPSP2 or Server 2003/8.

              sorry to mislead anyone with my haste remarks about the lack-luster quality of Vista Home Ed.

                No problem James. You must have seen similar if not worse tongue twister type posts I have made.

                  Re: Remote Desktops does'nt working

                  There's a registry edit out there to allow Vista Home premium to run as an RDP host and not just a client. I have so far been unsuccessful with getting it to work but I'm also runing Vista Home Premium 64 bit which maybe a factor.

                  I was wondering if anyone knew if a way to sidestep this limitation would be to install XP pro VM on a Vista box and enable RDP on that? This maybe a little off topic but I was thinking of using that as an alternative to being able to get access to that machine.

                    Connecting through RDP to a VM will not allow you to connect to the host. In certain conditions, you can access its drives.
