Windows 7: remote desktop

16 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
remote desktop

As I understand it, only XP Pro, Vista Ultimate and higher with 7 Ultimate and higher can only remote desktop.

I see there are some alternatives to this like Teamviewer. With TeamViewer or any other software like this, does the app need to be present on both PC's to work?

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

Windows 7 Professional has RDP as well. Can't say about vista since I avoided that one altogether.

VNC is another option.
