Windows 7: Microsoft Remote Desktop

Microsoft Remote Desktop

I want to set up my PC for remote access from my IPAD using the Microsoft RD app on my IPAD. I am running the home version of Win 7. Will Windows 7 Home Premium support that app? The examples I see on the Internet have Windows 10.

My system does support remote assistance which Microsoft has used. Also if there is a good example on the internet for setting up Microsoft RD on PC and IPad please list.

Thanks

Home editions of Windows do support Remote Desktop as a server. You need Professional or above to do that. Remote Assistance is not Remote Desktop.

Yes, I know that Remote Assistance is not Remote Desktop, but I was hoping that supporting Remote Assistance portended that Remote Desktop is supported. What I took away from your reply is that I would have to upgrade to Home Professional.

Thanks for replying.
