Specs: Windows 10, Windows 7
Have Win 10 PC and Win 7 PC on same network. Want to manage Win 7 from Win 10. Have set everything up according to directions, including opening up the firewall. Get "no can do" message: the pc is either off, not on the network, or ... But not true; its on, its on the network, everything is shared. Any ideas for digging a little deeper appreciated.

✔ Best Answer
What edition is the Windows 7 computer? Only Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions can act as a host for Remote Desktop. Remote Assistance is not Remote Desktop. Otherwise you will need a third party alternative.

Thanks to all for responses. LMiller7 nailed it. My Win 7 is the Home Premium edition which cannot be a host natively..
