What tablets run PC Anywhere?

Created: 01 Oct 2012 • Updated: 01 Oct 2012 | 3 comments

We use PC Anywhere to access our automation systems remotely. Currently our techs use PC Anywhere to access our system via laptops but we would like to upgrade to tablets. Which tablets, and more specifically what specs should we be looking for in a tablet? Suggestions appreciated...

Make sure they have full Windows OS's not windows embeded.   Windows embeded has very limited support. The orriginal windows xp embeded was the only one I think.    Currently windows 8 isn't listed as supported so make sure it isn't windows 8 if you want to be supported.   In limited laptop testing with win 8 it seemed to be ok however.

Cheers.

Agree with ICHCB.  Experience has shown, tablets with full Windows OS's up to Win7 seem to work ok. XP embedded has worked ok.  I've seen that on several POS/Kiosk system setups, but have not seen any Windows embedded beyond XP and pcAnywhere usage be successful.

Good luck

My organization uses HP tablets when needing a mobile Windows 7. They are loaded with Win 7 Pro. As far as specs, the majority of tablets have rough the same processor and memory. The storage is what you'll need to keep in min.
