Using multiple monitors with Remote Desktop on Windows 7 Pro

Windows 7 Professional does not natively support multiple monitors when connecting with Remote Desktop. For this feature, users are forced to purchase an expensive upgrade to Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate editions, or to a newer Windows release. Furthermore, both the local and remote systems must be running one of the supported versions of Windows.
