    Hi guys!
    I am trying to use the remote desktop function within my home network. So far everything just went fine. I am running XP Pro on the one and Win2000 on the other machine. Still there's a problem. Every time I try to open an explorer window mtsc.exe crashes and the connection hangs up.

    Any clues why this is happening? Are the OS versions not "compatible"?

    Thx for every hint I get!

    which one are you connecting to??

    WinXP -> Win2k?
    Win2k -> WinXP?

    I did it once connecting
    WinME -> WinXP and that was fine

    Looks like my description of the problem lacks of useful information :)

    Well, it's no full crash of the Os. It's just the remote connection crashing.

    over the local network is a bit weird, do you normally get any packet loss between the two machines??

    I have the same problem...
    Switching off the Themes setting within the Remote desktop app solves the problem...
    Somehow w2k doesn't like it...

    Thx all for the input!

    @gajef
    You were right. Remote Desktop Connection seems to hate the themes. Turned it off and voila :) Thx a lot!
