    Remote Desktop Annoyance

    My work PC is currently running Windows 7 RC1 while my home PC is on Windows 7 RTM. The problem I'm banging up against is that whenever I do a remote desktop from Home to Work I end up with a black screen!
    I can log in without any problems and I get about 10 - 20 seconds worth of use and then the whole thing goes off. I can remote in with a Windows 7 RC1 Netbook without any problems at all, but not from the Windows 7 RTM.

    Tried searching for an answer but can't find anything useful, any ideas?



    Thanks

    With a bit of digging I seem to have solved it.

    In the Experience tab of RDP I have to untick 'Desktop Composition'. Everything else can be ticked and RDP works without issue (so far).

    Hope that helps someone in the future
