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!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
