I've always known that RDC connectivity to a Windows 7 or Windows 10 machine was only an option if running the "Professional" version of the OS.  But most computers ordered by default have the "Home" edition.  I support family members' computers, and having an easy, secure way to remotely connect is very useful.

I've just recently discovered an opensource project that makes it possible to RDC to your Windows 7 or 10 Home edition computer.  I think it even supports multiple live sessions at a time, so more than one person could be using the computer at once, although I've not attempted this yet.  

Here is the link to the github project's list of releases.

At the time of this writing, the most recent entry on this page includes links to download the msi files, something new for this project. When I installed it on a Windows 7 machine a couple months ago, there were some .bat files to assist but no installer.

I've not installed this latest release, but I will be installing it soon on a new computer. When I do, if there are any interesting gotchas or things to know when installing, I'll edit this post and add that in.
If you have any experiences with this project you want to share, please add a comment.
