    How to: Add RDP capablity to Windows 10 Home

    Information As most users will be aware, one restriction in Windows 10 Home is that it will not act as an RDP Server, so you cannot remote to it from another device. Additionally, you can only run 10 Home in a Hyper-V virtual machine as a basic session (as it does not have RDP server capability), and cannot then get sound.

    This simple tutorial shows how to add RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) capability to Windows 10 Home.

    EDIT: Just tested for 1809 - does not seem to work. We will need an update

    Here's How

    Step 1: Download RDP Files in zip file format.zip

    https://github.com/stascorp/rdpwrap/...rap-v1.6.2.zip

    Alternatively, you can visit site below if a later version is available.

    https://github.com/stascorp/rdpwrap/releases


    Step 2: Extract files from zip file

    Double click on downloaded zip file, and select extract all.

    Leave default location as is or change as you prefer and click Extract Button

    Step 3: Install RDP Files

    Select install.bat with a right click


    Add RDP capablity to Windows 10 Home [​IMG]


    and select Run As Administrator


    Add RDP capablity to Windows 10 Home [​IMG]
    go

    The files are now installed, and you are ready to go.

    Information There is no switch to turn RDP on or off as in Pro, and so, with above steps it is always on.
    To turn RDP off run UNINSTALL.BAT in same way as for running Install.Bat in this Step.


    Step 4a: Connect to Windows 10 Home via RDP

    This is identical to normal way of installing as described in

    Add Remote Desktop Connection in Remote Desktop app on Windows 10 PC | Windows 10 Tutorials


    Step 4b: Connect to Windows 10 Home in Hyper-V Enhanced Mode

    This is identical to normal way of conecting to Windows PRo/Education/Enterprise in Enhanced Mode as described in

    Turn On or Off Hyper-V Enhanced Session Mode in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials


    That's it.

    :)

    Nice tut Martin*Thumbs

    Just a small warning about RDP(not saying anyone shouldn't use it, just protect yourself):

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Win 10 Home Edition RDP

    Will the windows 10 Home edition have the RDP capability? To allow RDP incoming transactions, or only outgoing?

    i.e. To connect to my PC with Win10 Home edition from another device on an outside network.

  6. RDP

    • Any changes made on the computer prior to this concern?

      Initially when we received the problem there wasn't any changes made on the computer since we couldn't figure out the problem, we upgraded the pc to windows 10. It fixed the problem momentarily and then it starts again. Then we re initiated the upgrade the
      same day I wrote this post and it was fixed again and then on today the issue is back
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

      In the past we would delete the MS Licensing Protocol folder as suggested by so many other posts and restart the RDP connection ad administrator to rebuild it. This time around it didn't fix anything. Like I said previously we've tried to upgrade the PC and
      the fix is temporal
    • Is this the first time that you encountered this problem? No
    • When did you notice about this issue? I'm not sure when it started because I haven't been on this project that long but I would say within the last month based on me. Based on other conversations this has happened in the past.
    • Can you send us a screenshot with the error message that you are getting? Note: Please do not include any personal information.

      Sure
