Nope

They both have to have remote desktop, and have to be Windows 7 Pro or above... Windows XP did the same thing (Have never really tried it on Vista). For example I could not use remote desktop to get into XP Home, While I was using remote desktop from XP Pro.

But what I could do instead is Remote Assistance, From XP Pro to XP Home..But I am not sure if Windows 7 Starter has Remote Assistance.. (I would think they would)

Hope that Helps...

Actually RDP client is available on any versions of W7. But no, you can't RPD to a W7 starter. Weird though, cos i would have thought, a higher spec OS should be able to RDP to a lower spec one, not the other way around. ESL so i could have interpret it wrongly.

Connect to another computer using Remote Desktop Connection
