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

and the 2k box is the one that hangs or the XP?

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!
