  • Hi,

    open regedit on the 7 machine and check:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\AllowRemoteRPC should have value 1

    Also on teh 7 machine: check your fireewall settigns to allow RPC; you can just turn of firewall for testing purposes, and turn it back on and configure when you have identified the issue.

  • hi, AllowRemoteRPC is set to 1 both on xp and win 7 machine.

    have tried to turn off firewall on win 7 machine but doesn't work as well.

    don't know if someone had successfully done to use Msg.exe from xp to win 7.

    Thanks for your reply.
