    Cannot activate Remode Desktop Connection in Vista Home Premium

    Hello,
    In System Properties/Remote I do not have the "Remote Desktop" section, so I
    cannot configure it. In all tutorials about this topic that section should be
    active, but in my case it is not. I have only the "Remote assistance" section.
    What can I do to use Remote desktop connection?

    Thanks.

    That means your running Vista Home Premium or Home Basic edition which can
    *NOT* act as a Remote Desktop (RDC) host/server. You can verify what version
    of Vista your running by going to "Start -> Run" and typing the command
    winver. Look at using an alternative like UltraVNC as an alternative if you
    need to remotely access/control the PC.

    Vista Home Premium or Home Basic edition can act as a RDC client if your
    trying to remotely access/control a Vista Ultimate/Business or XP Pro/MCE
    PC.
