How to Connect a Windows 7 Computer to a Windows XP


Even though Windows XP and 7 are different versions of Windows, you can still connect a computer running Windows 7 to an XP computer using Remote Desktop Connection. Remote Desktop Connection is a utility in Windows that allows you to log in to a remote computer directly from your computer's desktop. However, before you can use the utility on your Windows 7 computer, you must enable it on the Windows XP computer. To connect to the Windows XP computer, you also need to know the XP computer's name.

Instructions

Enable Remote Desktop on the Windows XP Computer
  1. Click "Start" on the Windows XP computer, and then right-click "My Computer."
  2. Click "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
  3. Click the "Remote" tab, and then click the "Allow Users to Connect Remotely to This Computer" check box.
  4. Click "OK" to confirm the change when prompted on the pop-up window. Click "OK" on the open windows to close them.

Connect to the Windows XP Computer
  1. Click "Start" on the Windows 7 computer, and then type "Remote Desktop Connection" in the search box. Press "Enter."
  2. Click "Remote Desktop Connection" from the results list.
  3. Type the name of the XP computer in the "Computer" box, and then click "Connect" to connect to the XP computer.

How do I setup Remote Desktop Service


I assume that the the computer on which you want the Remote desktop and the target computer whose desktop you want to capture are networked properly and the IP address with other TCP/IP settings are properly configured.

That said Go to Start and click Run the Run box will appear. In the run box type "mstsc" command to connect. A box will pop up asking for the "Computer" enter the computer name or more preferably the IP address which you want to connect to and capture the desktop remotely the Target computer.

Go to the target computer physically and right click the "My Computer" icon and then in the menu select the properties tab and click it you will see "System Properties" window pop up. On the top you will see some tabs. Select and click the "Remote" tab. At the Remote Desktop make sure that the "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer" check mark is selected if it is not ticked tick it. This is the way you are allowing your computer and other computers on the network to connect to this target computer.

Now go back to your computer click the connect tab.It should always connect as long as you give the correct IP or computer name in the "Remote desktop connection" box.

Best of Luck!!!

Format error


Do you realize that formatting your hard drive DELETES ALL of the data on that drive?

As in, gone forever...

So if you have a desktop, then you likely didn't do a "format", so WHAT did you do?

Was the PC you "formatted" an XP Pro machine, or just XP Home?

I'm not sure, but using an XP Pro disc on an XP Home machine may break things.

If it's an XP Pro machine then just put the disk back into the drive and follow the path to perform a windows repair installation.
