Windows 7: Do all flavors of 7 support RDC?

Do all flavors of 7 support RDC?

Back in the XP days...the Home version didn't let you use Remote Desktop Connection to log into your work/home computer. Windows 7 site isn't exactly clear when comparing all versions of 7....can you use RDC on ANY version of 7, including the basic Home Premium version? Their comparison between all 3 doesn't mention RDC.

Hello Vice,

All editions of Windows 7 support "Remote Desktop", but only the Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions support "Remote Desktop Hosting".

Compare Windows 7 Editions

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Ah, so if I have HOME Premium on my desktop at home, I can't remote in from work on my Mac or PC, correct? If so, that that makes my choice a lil easier now...thanks!

You can remote from your Home Premium, but not to it.

Thanks Brink...so that rules out the HOME version for me cuz I need to log into my home computer from work sometimes.
