    Yes.

    Upgrading to Windows 8.1 Pro is the only option if you need RDP. Buy Windows 8.1 Pro Pack - Microsoft Store.

    ok sounds like a plan.. im gonna close this thread but one more question. Is there truly an advantage of upgrading to 8.1 from 8?i mean can you at least tell me the biggest/main reason/advantage of jumping to 8.1pro(outside of RDP functionality)? Thanks again for all your help/knowledge & advice, much much thanks
