    Remote Desktop and Aero Glass?


    When I connect from a Windows 8.1 Enterprise system to a Windows 7 Ultimate system, I don't get Aero Glass in the RDP session. Did Microsoft remove Aero Glass remoting in Windows 8/8.1?

    You will never get the same results on a desktop through RDP, VNC or Team Viewer. If you had kept up with the news. Yes MS did remove Aero from 8 per their decision.

    Are you saying that MS removed Aero Glass from DWM, or are you saying that MS removed Aero Glass from mstsc.exe?

    Again, when MS designed Windows 8 & Server 2k12, they removed the whole Aero Glass out of the OS.

    I believe it is possible to have Aero glass on remote desktop client running Windows 8 but is normally disabled for performance reasons. Such a complex display requires a great deal of bandwidth.

    I have never attempted this.
