I am trying to set up remote desktop, but the remote tab is missing from my
system properties. Any ideas?

I am running Windows XP Proffesional SP1.

Thanks,
Hai

ago...

From the FAQ:

1. I do not have a Remote Tab under System Properties.

This error/condition usually occurs when you upgrade from a Windows
2000 Professional machine. Run the following command to restore the
Remote Tab: regsvr32 remotepg.dll

Yes, I tried all of these...I was just wondering if there was a fix for this
(without rebuilding my computer) since I asked my question last time.

I haven't read the old thread. Have you yet tried a repair install? This
isn't usually too traumatic--i.e. you don't need to reinstall apps, etc. It
does reset some defaults, and there are some cases where data loss is a
risk--search the MSKB on "repair install" and XP.

After the repair install, put up a firewall, and install Service Pack 2 for
windows XP, available here:
