I have a laptop running Windows 7 (Ultimate) RC 7100 with Remote Desktop enabled (allow connections) and it is using a Windows Aero theme. I have a second (brand new HP) laptop running Vista SP1 that I want to connect via Remote Desktop Connection to my Windows 7 laptop. It works fine, except I only get the Windows basic theme. Is there a way to get an Aero theme? The date of the mstsc.exe file on my HP Vista laptop is 01/20/2008. (I haven't tried Windows 2008 R2, but is it the same (i.e. just the basic theme)?
