Microsoft Surface 2

I just got one of these and the color is awesome on the HD screen. I am trying to sync it to my laptop on my wifi so I can perhaps trade from it and am having a hard time. Can anyone here help me? TIA

What do you mean by sync and what OS are you using on your laptop?

Thanks guys I keep getting this message. Make sure pc is turned on and connected to the network ( it is) and that remote access is enabled (it is).

Laptop has windows 7 home premium loaded.

Kinda stuck. I need to be able to connect to my laptop to get at my live charts on the tablet. If I am unable to do this with this tablet I need to take it back. I only have 14 days in which to do that.

I tried it by computer name and also by IP address. Nada so far.

Thanks for that vid Cory I must have missed that in my data mining for info on this tablet.

any other suggests guys?

TIA

Use the instructions in this link (and attached download) to enable Windows 7 Premium to use RDC:

Concurrent RDP Patcher Enables Remote Desktop in Windows 7 Home Premium ? Raymond.CC

I've installed in one of my notebooks and works like a champ.

Google Concurrent RDP Patcher and you will even find some videos on youtube with directions.

Good luck!

Thanks for the link.

Is it best to do it by IP address or computer name or it does not matter?

TIA

I downloaded the fix from that link but all that happen is a little box popped up with 2 boxes to be checked. I checked the boxes. It still does not work. In systems the box for enable remote is checked.

When I went to downloads to run no wizard came up. just that little box. I am still getting the same error message.

Got this second eror on the last download of this file. It still does not work. Not sure it is going to so I am open to suggestions now. TIA

You need to reboot the computer after installing.


Btw, I like to leave the enable multiple logins unchecked, because I like to login to the original screen in my notebook (otherwise it will open a new session for each login as it says...)

I did restart and still am getting the same message. I will try it again now.

I really like this tablet but will need to take it back or just get another type if I cannot make this work as that is the whole reason I got this thing. Thanks for all the help so far.

One thing I forgot to ask above is does it matter weather the laptop is connected to the modem directly or is on the wifi?

also forgot to ask if I need to download it to the tablet as well.

TIA
