    MDC & Remote Assistance


    I know this is still only a preview edition of Win 8 but I was wondering if anyone knows if Mobile Device Centre and/or Remote Assistance will be included in the final build?

    Hello Mudplugger,

    They already are included, and should still be in the final release. The tutorials below are for Windows 7, but still apply to Windows 8.





    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Thanks for the tips on Windows Remote Assistance. Pitty it requires a shortcut, vs Win 7 where you could just search for it in the start menu.

    I'm not after the Windows Mobility Centre I'm after Windows Mobile Device Centre, the application that allows mobile devices such as mp3 players and windows phone 6.5 devices to synch with your desktop machine. If this is not available for Windows 8 it will be a show stopper for me as I won't be synching client details to the cloud.
