What is wrong with this PC? Windows 7 Professional N and all latest updates installed..

i've installed it from scratch last week. msdn iso en_windows_7_professional_n_with_sp1_x86_dvd_u_677328.iso

remote desktop services and remote desktop configuration services are started and running

this is the registry entry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server]

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

This is weird, since Win 7 Pro has RDP host. Try sfc /scannow in command prompt. You might be missing some files. – chmod Mar 14 '12 at 20:49
thanks for the suggestion. i'm running it and i'll post results. – giammin Mar 14 '12 at 20:59
Sadly: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. – giammin Mar 14 '12 at 21:33
Has the computer previously been in a domain where the domain admins have pushed some gpo:s on their clients disabling the rdp host? – Mattias Åslund Mar 14 '12 at 22:28

This is not a solution, but I found out that it is due to SP1 being installed. Some people with the same problem resolved it by removing SP1.

Remote Desktop doesn't work after upgrade to SP1 - Windows 7 Forums
