    TinyXp Rev05 + Remote Desktop

    Hi,

    How can I install Remote Desktop (the one that comes with WinXP - mstsc.exe) in tinyxp ?
    I tried downloading it from Microsoft but when I install it it says that remote desktop comes built-in in my OS so it doesn't want to install...

    Thanks.

    The problem, I think, is that when you attempt to DL it, the DL page sees you have XP, and thinks you have it, even though you have stripped it out/don't have it because you are using TinyXP.

    You have few options. Use something aftermarket, if you can get it to run on your TinyXP OS, use a complete XP OS, and not a stripped version, or create your own stripped version of XP, leaving in the Remote Desktop service.

    If you search on my username and the term TINY XP, you should find a thread from me that will help you with the last option.

    Thanks for your suggestions. There's no way I can just reinstall the Remote Desktop service in the installation I've got now ? Maybe by copying all the files it needs and put back in the registry all the needed keys... ???

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, in all my research regarding adding services to various versions of Tiny XP, it just is not possible to add them. Even if it could be done like you suggest, reinstalling the OS over the existing version seems easier.

    Hi, just to let you know in case someone else need it, I found how to bring back the remote desktop feature in TinyXp rev05:
    Copy the 2 files (mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll) from a working installation in the windows\system32\ folder and run mstsc.exe. This bring up the connection box to connect to a remote computer. It didn't bring back the Remote tab in the "My computer" properties though. That, I don't know how...

    That is actually the case of most issues...a couple of files and some info is normally enough.

    ..but I can't understand why you are so persisitant using that TinyXp, it's better you throw it together yourselves.
