Vista home from XP Pro

By designer ·
I am having trouble finding a program that will allow me to help my 85 year old father-in-law with his windows Vista problems from my XP pro machine. It seems Vista Home does not allow remote assistance with other products. Will Crossloop allow this?

Work around

I reserched some other sites and seems folks are using realVNC, ultraVNC... etc. I don't know about crossloop but I did see a link for a workaround to put remote desktop back on:

It seems credible and since I began looking into this I've seen it referred to on atleast 5 other sites.

Good luck

The Tony Chan link worked out. I was able to set it up and remote within 2 minutes.

Does anyone know if there are any issues using this? Thankfully I have it on a test pc running Vista Home Premium
