Remote desktop connection

For some reason I can't seem to access it. I am an administrator, and even tried adding myself to the remote desktop users group and I'm still not seeing it. I inserted an XP Professional CD and tried to install it, but it tells me that it's already installed.

Why don't I see it under accessories/communications?
I tried another profile, but still nothing.

    I think if you recently ran Windows updates there was an RDP updtae. You should find it now under Start>All Programs>Accessories.

    Otherwise try %SystemRoot%\system32\mstsc.exe, which you can simply launch from the RUN dialogue as mstsc.exe.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    It is under My Computer, Right Click on My computer, go to properties. Click on the Tab that says Remote. Make sure Remote Desktop Connections has a check mark in it.

    That should allow you to remote into your desktop.

    Yeah, it's already enabled...I just couldn't find the program. Mstsc.exe worked, thanks a lot.

    I regularly use the command line mstsc /v:SERVERNAME also the -console switch if too many others are logged into the other sessions.
