How to remote access an older PC from a Windows 8 Home edition

We have a small SBS 2003 network and we are using Remote Web Work Place (RWW) a lot. One of the users recently bought a Windows 8 Home edition PC and we were not able to make it connect to his work computer.  
If the Win 8 laptop is connected on the internal network I launch Remote Desktop and it connects just fine.  
When at home he starts the RWW (we managed to install the certificate so no more errors there), it comes up with the option to connect at my work computer, it lists the work computers, you can highlight the computer you want and click connect and then stops there, it does nothing.

We will try your suggestion this evening when we try again to remote connect from home
I am sorry it took me so long to answer but my user took her sweet time to call me back.  She did check Compatibility mode and it worked like a charm.  Thank you.
