    Eugh this is going to take me a while!

    All the new kit i had after the fire is Windows 7 so i have been spending my time trying to get my head around this....its taking me a while!

    I've first got the ongoing saga of getting KMS to do as its told.

    VAMT throws up errors about not being to connect to WMI (tried this when i got annoyed with KMS)

    Then i've got profile issues which i have carried over from my XP machines somehow (kids log in no icons or after working on a document, minimise it and all their icons have vanished).

    I cant remote to any of my clients. I know the machines are on, ive added inbound rules to firewall but googling says i need to disable UAC...

    lol! If anybody can point me to some good guidance with any of these let me..

    I got this other day, guessing you allowed 'Remote Administration' though the firewall. Its a option in group policy.

    WMI has a firewall rule you can open up as well, just found that doing SCCM...

    Never had any issues with KMS for Office though; will find out if I do with Win7 soon enough I suppose!

    Are you using redirected desktops?

    What are you trying to use for Remote control?

    Right click my computer -> properties -> remote settings -> is it set to allow under remote desktop?
