Windows 7: Unable to change driver settings on remote computer

Unable to change driver settings on remote computer


When connecting to a remote computer (via Remote Desktop Connection) I can successfully see devices and settings on the remote computer in Device Manager but I am unable to change any of the device driver settings.

How can I change driver settings like rolling back drivers on the remote computer?

Thanks in advance.

I use Teamviewer for remote desktop purposes and it works like a charm.
