Windows 7: remote connection: can't select who can connect

remote connection: can't select who can connect

Hi!

I have 3 computers with Windows 7 Pro.

I can use remote control between 2 of them, but I can not connect from any of those two to the third one. All the services needed for remote control are running, and I have tried several tutorials on how to set up remote control...and nothing. Again, only on third computer remote control does not work. On that computer I have 2 accounts: one standard and one admin. I have put admin account under "Select users" and did not help. Tried with enabled Administrator account and nothing. Below you will see the picture which describes the problem. I can not select who can connect.

Hello,

Please give this a try:

Log on as an Admin, then enable Remote Desktop from the Host computer (Win 7 Pro/Ult):
Click on Start=> type gpedit.msc press enter. Navigate to the "Local Computer Policy=> Computer Configuration=> Administrative Templates => Windows Components=> Remote Desktop Services=> Remote Desktop Session Host=> Connections=> Select "Allow users to connect remotely using Remote Desktop Services", dbl click on it and select Enabled, click OK.

Please let us know if it works or not.

I have allready stumbled upon this advice when I was googling my problem.
And I cound not apply it, because there was not "Remote Desktop Services" under "Windows components". Strange. I must have mest up my 7 badly. Homegroup is not accesible anymore, nor I can share printer installed on problematic computer. Reinstall is in orderd...and this time I am leaving everything as is after installation

thanks for your help...appreciate it...best of regards
