How to enable remote display adapter on Win7?

俣谈 韩 0 Reputation points

Hi, I am using Remote Desktop to connect to a machine running Windows7. When I want to check dx feature level and WDDM version through "dxdiag" command, I cannot get detail information.

And I noticed that it use RDPUDD Chained DD instead of Remote Display Adapter. Is that the reason for missing detail info? If it is, how can I change it to use Remote Display Adapter? Thx a lot!

    By default, Windows 7 does not include built-in support for remote display adapters.

    If you want to enable remote display capabilities on your Windows 7 machine, you will need to use specialized hardware or software that provides this functionality.

    If you specifically need a physical remote display adapter, you'll need to research and purchase hardware that supports this feature.
