I missed the small fact that RemoteFX required Enterprise versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8. All the YouTube videos and forum posts that I encountered didn’t explicitly specify that I needed the Enterprise versions. And thus I wasted my time futzing with all this RemoteFX and Hyper-V nonsense.
I could get my hands on a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate but RemoteFX isn’t worth the cost of that.
So what’s next? I have no idea what to do with that Radeon HD 5770 that I have installed in my home server. I could go ahead and do some digital currency mining. I hear PrimeCoin is the new hotness.
