Remote desktop connection help

Hello I am running a lite version of windows 7 32bit in which the dev took off remote desktop.

I have looked everywhere but cant find a guide to reinstalling it.

Any help would be great, here is the error when I try to run MSTSC: http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/6255/screenqk.png

I don't believe you can install it on Windows 7 as it was intended to be a part of it. The only installers available are for upgrading to the newest RDC on XP and Vista. A workaround would be to install a third party remote desktop client. Check out the following:
