Hi

Long and short of it:

I can connect to windows XP machines just peachy but not windows 7 pro from my server 2008 r2

soon as i click next it says do you have permission,is the computer on etc without even trying to look. I dont think it is even looking just does the above

I have no firewall on the windows 7 machine but allowed the exemptions anyway.

Message in event viewer is

There was a problem interacting with COM object 833E4010-AFF7-4AC3-AAC2-9F24C1457BCE.  An outdated version might be installed, or the component might not be installed at all.

I do not have any other MS software running except the update server

Can anyone help I have researched this for ages and cannot find any info about it.

Most likely you have not enabled the Remote Assistance and added the proper permissions for the user to connect.

yes i have seen these articles but  they are not really a cure but a work around. As I remote into the site i guess the owner will not want me to have a pc sitting there doing nothing most of the day

If you remote into the system then you would need to connection point.

I worked the problem out myself there was a conflict with my remote policy and another policy. I loaded system centre 2010 and all worked ok
