Solved Windows 7 home premium vs professional Tags: Computers Windows 7 Windows 8 Operating Systems Last response: February 21, 2014 8:32 PM in Windows 7 Share L42cf February 21, 2014 7:29:40 PM So I've used the former and I'm building a new computer and need to choose a OS to buy (I'm going from a laptop to a computer,). My main uses will be streaming, some video editing and gaming, so would there be any enticing features I'd need from professional to warrant the ~$50 difference? Also, while I've read you can't use remote desktop, could I use programs like TeamViewer with home premium, or could you not even use those types of programs?

Bottom line is that unless you are in an enterprise environment and need to join a domain, or want to run XP virtual mode, you don't need anything beyond Home Premium. Reply to ex_bubblehead Share L42cf February 21, 2014 8:32:18 PM Well I just don't know if Windows 7 Home can run TeamViewer 9, since it otherwise can't share local remote host. Edit: jk i found it, it can run teamviewer, so it's all good Reply to L42cf m 0 l Ask the community Post an answer Related resources Solvedmy laptop had windows 7 home premium,at work they up grade it to professional solution SolvedWhat is the difference between Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) 64-bit solution compare home premium windows 7 to professional version solution I am unable to login to my work Windows 7 professional from home windows 7 hone premium solution Windows 7 Home Premium Running Professional Optomized Software Forum Windows 7 Professional Upgrade from Home Premium solution My pc was alredy upgraded to windows 7 home premium to professional Forum Windows home premium vs professional Forum Upgrading windows 7 home premium to professional Forum Windows 7 home premium v professional for gaming?
