    Is the Windows 8.1 vm a Pro or Enterprise edition? Only these editions can act as remote host, allowing incoming remote desktop connections. The Windows 8.1 core / basic version cannot be connected to with remote desktop.

    Er, it is in fact not Pro or Enterprise.

    I have genuine product keys for Windows 8.1 Pro but can't find my DVD or ISOs.

    If you have 8.1 installed "Add features" then enter the Pro key to upgrade to Pro Add Features to Windows 8

    Checked. They are Windows 8 Pro keys. No DVD or ISO for Windows 8.

    But I've got the Teamviewer working. :)

    I don't know if you can enter 8 Pro key in 8.1 to upgrade. Presumably you tried it and it didn't work :)

    If you've got a retail key you should be able to get an 8 ISO from here Upgrading Windows with only a product key - Windows Help
