Enable Remote Desktop Connection on Vista Home Premium
August 30th, 2007 | DIY, technology

Edit: I have now made a patch zip file for Vista SP1 available here: http://www.unet.fi/ fransblog/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/termsrv_sp1.zip (hope it works for you, it did ok for my Home Premium SP1.) There are many nice, but also quite many really irritating aspects to Windows Vista.

Some are due to Microsoft intentionally crippling their own products. One of the most tiresome has been the disabling of Remote Desktop Connection. If you have to run down the stairs every time to check whether a particular process has ended or not, it gets old really quick, and double so when you realise that Vista Home Premium actually includes fully-featured Remote Desktop service, it is just broken by design. Here are the instructions to turn it back on — thanks a lot, guys! Steps to Add Remote Desktop to Vista Home Premium: 1. Download termsrv.zip here 2. Extract Termsrv.zip to a temp directory 3. Start “Command Prompt” in Administrator mode (Run As Administrator) 4. Run the corresponding batch file for your Vista edition 5. Allow TCP Port 3389 on Windows Firewall or any other firewall product.

That’s great, Frans. I have to admit I didn’t even know there was a Windows solution like that to begin with. I’ve been using RealVNC to connect to my media PC. A Google search shows that a MS client could be installed on my desktop, but no sofware for my server as they both run on the ancient W2k Pro. Now let me count how many OS generations I’m already behind… ;)

Well, VNC connections run nicely as well, to my experience. I use it to access my server too, as it runs on Linux. Some say that in a Windows

machine VNC takes up more resources than RDC though, but I have not compared them side-by-side. It was just easier to get this Vista workstation to enable its broken RDC service than get it to allow incoming VNC connections, or that was how it was for me.

I just tried this on the version of vista home premium on my new toshiba a210. When I ran the install for the toshiba it created a user with administrator rights. However when I tried the above, I get permission denied on every step. Seeing this, I’m guessing vista has another user level or the administrator rights are not full for everything?

Actually, the block you are seeing is the User Account Control. Microsoft put this on the system to stop users from running commands they might want to make without first accepting every step. Gotta love the intricacies. Frans, you made a great breakthrough here and I cannot wait

I was so happy to see this posting since my new computer came with Vista Home Premium and the only service it didn’t have that I really wanted was Remote Desktop sharing. I’ve downloaded the zip and followed the instructions and it does appear that the service is running on port 3389 but no computer on my network can connect to it. There is no error, the client just seems to give up after a few seconds of trying to connect. I disabled my firewall and AV to make sure they weren’t interfering but it made no difference. Are there further steps to follow

John, this sounds weird — I’d suggest going directly to Tony Chan’s site (http://portal.tonychan.org/Default.aspx?tabid=58&EntryID=123) or some other, really tech savvy sites. I would just be guessing.

It appears that the termsrv.dll wasn’t copying over properly (even though I’m pretty sure it said it did in the cmd window). Anyway, I copied the file manually and started it up and it’s working great now! Thanks for pointing me to Tony’s blog.
