Specs: Win 7 32, 4

My PC's are connected through a Switch, I have shared all harddisks and it works fine.


My issue is 1 pc is win7 32 and other is XP professional

I try to connect RA from win7 to XP (just right click on other PC name and click on Connect with Remote Desktop connection). It initialises and then asks for a username and password in RA screen (from XP). I work as administrator on both machines with no password.


Please assist me setup RA.

If you can't get things working, 12 pages of Freeware here. TeamViewer is hard to beat, it's just a matter of finding one that suits your skill level.

I can go upto the remote desktop window where I am prompted with a dialog box from windows XP which asks for a username and password.

And I dont want to use third party on these PC's.

I think it i something to do with the XP setup.. ??

I just set a password for XP system, and it works fine.

But when I take RA, the XP system goes into a log off state.

Is there a way to use it actively.?
