For those of you running Windows XP that want to do this without having to attach a CD-Rom...
Download this file http://home.earthlink.net/~dsptech1/webplayer/remotexp/remote.zip and copy it over to your
WebPlayer. Unzip and install by
double-clicking the setup.exe file. Now you either have to add a new user to your users folder in Administrative tools, Computer
management, Local Users and Groups, Users from the Control Panel on your XP box, Or you must be using a password with your own profile to access your profile remotely (I'm using my existing profile). Start Remote Desktop Connection from the
WebPlayer and type in the name of your XP Box (network name for your system). Type in your profile name and password and wait for your desktop to to load.
Don't expect to run any 3D games, or movies. Still cool to see and have access to everything on you system. You also won't be able to use your PC at the same time.
