I have noticed since upgrading to Windows 10 I am unable to Log into my work network which uses Server 2008. It keeps giving me the following error. I have added it to the compatibility mode settings but still get the same error. This is the following error I am getting " The wizard cannot configure Remote Desktop Connection settings. Make sure that the client version of Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 6.0 or later is installed on this computer"...
If remote computer has user password all works well,but if no user password can't log on. In windows 7 this was not a problem,is there a work around so if two windows10 computers have no user passwords you can connect?. This is on a private home network. Don't want to use third party software for this process.
I never had this problem on Windows 7. But when I remote to a Win 10 PC, start a process, let's say copying files, when I close the connection (via the X at the top...NOT disconnect from start menu), it closes the copy process.
Are there some new settings or something that I need to change to correct this?
I have been unable to find anything. It's quite simple, the Remote Desktop options have both become greyed out. The 'allow remote requests' is still available. I have seen posts saying to check group policy, but I have done that and I have no group policy settings set.
after installing a replacement GPU, RDP now only connects to the home server when i have "use all my monitors" enabled.If i have it unticked the session will try to open on my second monitor - which is connected to the onboard GPU, unlike the first, which is connected to the discrete one - as usual, but blurt out a connection error after starting to render the remote desktop.If i tick "use all my monitors" in RDP settings, a connection is made, but displayed on my main screen.
I've been noticing that RDP is a toss up on my Windows 10 machines. It hangs and I have to close the connection, then try again and get an error stating it's not available because it's busy, then try a third time after a few minutes and it works. I have disabled connecting to printers, clipboard, smartcard, etc. and still have the problem.
On Desktop computer have OODLES of storage and multi-media file but slow Wifi card.
Laptop (new) has mega fast Wifi - AC 5GHZ. Almost as fast as LAN.
Want to chromecast some movies to a TV in a friends house.
Can I direct Wire the laptop to the desktop so I can share the multimedia files and then use the laptops fast Wifi to beam it to the remote TV via chromecast.
I can't run Lan cables all over the place - but if a direct connection can allow me to use the WIFI adapter of the laptop then problem solved.
What sort of cable do I need -- I don't believe you can just stick a bit of Lan cable between the two computers (or can you).
Years ago there was a thing called LAPLINK -- relied on old serial COM ports --that would be too slow - and in any case no COM ports on these computers.
I don't care if it's "Heath Robinson" --it's not a permanent setup - but we want to watch a load of movies etc and his wifi isn't fast enough (the ISP internet service is superfine and his router is capable of high wifi speed), --We've been banished to his shed where the computer is - because the women want to do something else !!!!.
Note - normal sharing works but is a bit of an abysmal failure since I can only get about 500 Kbs -not Mbs !!!!!) from his wifi card on the desktop so normal sharing is TOO slow. The data won't get delivered to the laptops wifi fast enough to watch the movies without re-buffering every few secs - especially if it's 1080p with subtitles that usually need transcoding on the fly).
after recently downgrading and then upgrading back up to Windows 10 I experienced yet another problem. Now I have no remote access connection manager service. This was discovered by a technician via live support trying to create a VPN connection.
The other problem I have is installing virtual machines. Here are a couple of screen captures with the error messages here:
I don't want to resort to doing a complete clean re-installation of Windows just yet. Furthermore I also did come across [URL] and was wondering if that would bring me back to a normal functioning Windows 7 as even downgrading from Windows 10 in the past seemed to have caused some problems.
But I'm currently browsing the internet and typing to you.
In fact - I can do virtually everything (League; Steam; Skype; etc) except use any OS feature that requires logging in - e.g. Mail, User Accounts, Shop, etc. Then it says something along the lines of "Cannot use this service without an internet connection - please connect and try again." When I run Network Diagnostics as the prompt recommends - it says I am connected and cannot find a problem.
It doesn't always happen - but it seems to be determined on start-up. If I restart it now it might be working next launch - but 75% of the time it will encounter the same issue. It's been happening for months now but I've sort of gotten used to using my phone to check my emails - but I've now encountered an issue with one of my hard drives being unable to be searched (tried indexing, etc) and the only step I've found that I haven't tried says it could be a corrupted user account - but I cannot update my user account without "connecting to the internet". -_-
The system is up to date. No driver updates available.
I have a windows 8 computer plugged in my tv and it has a microsoft account.I try to connect remotely from a windows 10 machine. I cant seem to enter the right user name. I have set up the tv computer to allow remote desktop and it works great with the local user i created, but with it doesn't work with the microsoft account.The name of the pc plugged into the tv is called TV.I also added the user into the remote settings.
Weird is that it works with the local account. How to do this with a microsoft account?
Win 10 computer can see the XP machine and access shared files, like wise from the XP machine. I can remote control the XP computer using Desktop Connection, it works great. What I cannot do is remote control the Win 10 computer from the XP. File sharing and network discovery is setup on both. The network was established before Win 10, as the group is WORKGROUP. Too many devices to go through and change over to HomeGroup.
The XP computer is the professional version with Remote Desktop installed. I do not get any numerical error msgs to track down the problem. I have tried using the IP address and computer name but neither work.
I tried to log in to my workplace computer using remote desktop web access. website allows me to sign in to RD service website but when I try to login a workplace computer it not respond when I click connect button. I am not sure this problem is MS edge or Win 10. I am using Win 10 Home version.
I recently upgraded from Win 7 Ultimate to Win 10 Pro. After upgrade, I can only start Remote Desktop once if done shortly after a boot/reboot. I believe it's only a matter of several minutes, but can't say for sure yet.
Shortly after rebooting, Remote Desktop will start and function correctly. If I close that connection and attempt to restart, the "loading" circle appears for about 5 seconds, then disappears. Nothing happens after that.
The mstsc.exe process starts, but nothing happens. A new process will start for each successive time I attempt to start remote desktop. I've stopped the processes and tried again with same results.
I go to Canterbury College and they have the school system set up so that students can do a remote desktop connection a there server and login into their accounts using there own computers. I bring my laptop to college and I have to login to the remote desktop using a shortcut on my desktop to use it. I have searched the web and do not know if it is possible for me to set it up on Windows to let me instead of clicking my user name on the lock screen but let me sign into the remote desktop as soon as I turn the computer on. This will make it easier than login into my home account and then the school account if I could log straight into the school system. At the moment the school laptops automatically connect to the remote desktop server when you turn them on.
I am looking for a Remote viewer application that i can use to look at my other Windows 10 box from my windows 7 desktop. I can use RDP but i want something i can use to just view the desktop, i have dameware but does not work with Windows 10. any application that free out there. ive also tried Push vnc doesnt work either.
I'm using windows 10 and I'm trying to connect to a printer attached to a remote networked Windows 7 Pro computer. When I go to Settings/Devices/Add printer my printer attached to the remote computer shows up. When I click on the printer I get a window that says "That didn't work". We can't install this printer right now. Try again later or contact your network administrator." How to handle this??
