owa does not display remote computers

we have a couple of users who we would like to use OWA remote desktop connections.

We have a single sbs2008 server and the users in question have windows v7 pro 64 bit and a windows v8 HP 64 bit laptops.

We have configured both users on our server for remote e-mail and desktop access, and both workstations are set to allow remote connections.

The windows v7 Pro user can connect perfectly when using https://remote.domainname.co.uk and we can see e-mail, internal website, and computers to connect to.

Unfortunately, the Windows 8 user logs in OK, but we don't see any remote computers to connect to.

Both are supposedly configured in the same way, but I just cannot get the workstation we need to remote into, to show on the OWA panel for the required user.

Can anyone advise on how I would go about troubleshooting and resolving this problem.

Many thanks.

Try adding the https://remote.domainname.co.uk domain to Internet Explorer's Compatibility View list: in Internet Explorer click on Tools in the menu bar (press the Alt key if the menu isn't visible) > go down to Compatibility View Settings > click the Add button > click Close when done > try logging into the Remote Web Access portal again.
