comment repair corrupted PDF
I see where you just said it won't load, but do you get an error? Often times on difficult PDFs I find the PDF viewer built into Linux Mint is extremely resilient and can open files that other programs just cant seem to get their heads around. Reprinting it to PDF from Mint makes a clean pdf that the other programs can then use. I do this many times a month for users at my work.

comment Software KM switch - not video
Are all monitors connected and running on each computer? You said not video, so I take away from that and picture a desk with say 3 or 4 monitors on it, all connected to different computers each with its own KB and Mouse under it. Is that the setup we are trying to rectify?

comment remote desktop ubuntu server
Putty will work if all you want to do is see your "console" and have control of the server from the given cli. As far as a full gui, that won't really be possible on a server with no gui.

comment Force screen resolution to its maximum in Windows
@Manu If the answer is no, you need to install them and the proper resolution should appear in your list of options. If the answer is yes then something is wrong and you need to either re-install the drivers of the monitor or the video card in order for it to show in the list. Basically what Lese is saying is if the drivers are installed properly, then the resolution should appear as an option. Lese doesn't seem to think your drivers are installed correctly.

comment How can I use both monitors during RDP session?
This is not a true multi-monitor environment but if it works for you then that is excellent.

comment How can I use both monitors during RDP session?
The number of monitors on the work PC is moot, it is running XP and does not support multiple monitor RDP. Please see my answer below.

@ramhound Unfortunately the TARGET PC has to be the one with Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate. No, Windows 7 pro does not support it. ONLY Ultimate and Enterprise.
