Windows 7: Win XP SP3 cannot connect via RDP to a Win7 PC.

2 Weeks Ago   #1

Win 7 Pro 64 Bit
Win XP SP3 cannot connect via RDP to a Win7 PC.

I have a new install of Win 7 64 bit Pro on a new PC in another room on a hard wired network. My Win XP SP3 laptop sees and connects via RDP to an older PC running Win 7 64 bit Pro just fine, but despite much fiddling my laptop cannot "see" the new PC at all. All are set to WORKGROUP and have file and printer sharing turned on. This XP laptop can see and get files from the new Win7 PC, but RDP isn't working at all. Any ideas please? Many thanks!

But I found a problem as soon as I tried out IE. The 64-bit IE works fine, barring the lack of Flashplayer support. So I tried to open the x86...
