Remote Administration on Windows 8.1 - MMC stop working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using SCDPM 2012 R2.

    I've tried installing DPM Remote Administration feature on 2 Windows 8.1 PCs (Windows in Spanish) and get the same error: MMC stop working.

    The PCs have Net Framework 3.5 and patched up to date.

    The question is:

    Is it posible to remote administering DPM 2012 R2 from a Windows 8.1 PC?

    Thanks in advance.
