    Unable to connect to PC using Microsoft Remote Desktop running on a Macbook Air


    I have recently added the Microsoft Remote Desktop app to my iPad, and the remote connection works perfectly to my PC running Windows 10. I have just added the app to my Macbook Air and attempted to connect, but I constantly receive an error message - Error Code: 0x204. I searched with Google and checked the most common problems and all seems good (not forgetting that it is working with Android). I can find no information online relating to similar problems, so any assistance identifying the cause of the problem would be extremely well received. Thank you in advance for your help. Note that both the PC and Macbook Air are completely up-to-date with respect to operating systems and apps.

    :)

    Remote Desktop Connection problems


    Have you tried Remote Desktop Connection, to connect from your Windows 10 laptop to your Windows 7 desktop? Try it first, post back and tell how it went.

    Some additional help because you mentioned you are a remote newbie *Wink. The windows 7 related tutorials from our sister site the Seven Forums:


    1. On Windows 7 desktop, set network location to either Home or Work (I recommend Work):
    2. On Windows 7 desktop, allow incoming remote connections:
    3. On Windows 7 desktop, find out its IP address:
    4. On Windows 10 laptop, start the Remote Desktop application and connect to the Windows 7 desktop using the IP address from step 3 above (see Part Three in the tutorial):
    Try the above, post back how it went.
