    Microsoft Remote Desktop / iPhone - Windows 8

    Hey guys,

    i want to connect my iphone with my pc which has windows 8. Downloaded the "Microsoft Remote Desktop" app for my iphone but i can't seem to make it work.
    Read a few guides and i always see this picture: Link
    For me it looks different... i only have "Remote Assistance"... "Remote Desktop" does exist for me :/
    Here a picture how it looks for me: Link

    Why is this not showing up for me? :/

    Thanks for your help :-)

    Hi KeyGee and welcome to Eightforums,

    It appears you are running a 'normal' version of Windows 8 on your desktop. You'll need the PRO version in order to enable remote access.

    Sorry, but without buying an upgrade you won't be able to remote connect through your iPhone.
