Re: Cannot connect using Remote Assistance

Is this in a domain environment or a workgroup environment? AFAIK Remote Assistance offer functionality from a Vista to a XP machine only works in a domain environment. Here is a procedure that works for me in a workgroup environment.

Otherwise a third-party program like TeamViewer for example may work for you.
