  • Hi,

    Paul told out the points. We can use a PC running any edition of Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7, or a PC running Windows 8, Windows RTWindows 8.1, or Windows RT 8.1 to initiate a connection. But the remote PC must be running one of these Windows operating systems:

    • Windows 8.1 Pro            

    • Windows 8.1 Enterprise            

    • Windows 8 Enterprise            

    • Windows 8 Pro            

    • Windows 7 Professional

    • Windows 7 Enterprise

    • Windows 7 Ultimate

    • Windows Vista Business

    • Windows Vista Ultimate

    • Windows Vista Enterprise

    • Windows XP Professional

  • Remote desktop is only included in the Professional, Business, or Ultimate versions of Windows. Home editions do not have remote desktop.
