Remote Desktop and Aero in Windows 7

Remote Desktop and Aero in Windows 7

From what I've heard and read so far I should be able to enjoy Aero over a remote desktop connection. Both computers here run Windows 7 Professional but enabling Desktop composition doesn't do anything. Searching around only told me that it should work out of the box on Windows 7 while Server 2k8 R2 needs a little more work to get it working.

"Refer to this chart - http://en.wikipediadotorg/wiki/Windows_7_editions#Comparison_chart

The Experience features are available when you connect to Windows 7 from Ws2008 R2 as well. However you get the full set of features only when you connect to Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate editions. When you connect to Windows 7 Professional features such as multimedia redirection, bi-directional audio, multiple monitor etc will not be available."
