Hello,

Is it possible to have the remote desktop connection (admin tools) client installed on a Win XP Home machine?
I've used it all the time at work as we have XP Pro but at home i have XP Home and grow tired very quickly of faking remote desktop connection using remote assistance.

More about : remote desktop connection home

Yes, it's installed by default, but you can get the latest version here:

I'm not sure you mean what we think you are saying.

It is not possible for XP Home to be the host machine--i.e. for you to see
the XP Home desktop remotely from another machine, using Remote Desktop
Connection, or Remote Desktop Web connection.

The client piece--the piece which allows you to see other machines, is
installed by default--in accessories, communications.
