Cannot access Remote Desktop Access

By Gregg S ·
I have successfully used Remote Desktop Access on this PC in the past by using a shortcut. However it has quit working. Upon further investigation, I have discovered that it is not even listed in All Programs,Communications. I then tried downloading a new instance of it from the Web, but it would not install, getting the error message that it is a part of Win XP Pro, which I am running. How do I find it again and start using it?

The Remote Desktop Connection client application is located at %SystemRoot%\System32\mstsc.exe. Make a new shortcut to this file and call it Remote Desktop Connection. You'll be all set!
