I've got a server running windows 2008r2 and I can remote from a pc running xp to it finely.But when I wanna have remote connection from my pc running windows 7 ,it says

remote computer could not find the remote computer .this can happen if the computer is not yet registered with the session broker .

But I enter the name correctly and there is no problem with the connection by windows XP. I added the user to remote access group.and I've added this computer to session broker group in server 2008.but it wasn't useful.what's the solution?

thanks for helping.

You need to provide more detail on your configuration. The Session Broker isn't a required component. The fact that you've mentioned it in your question leads me to believe that there's more to this question then you've presented. – joeqwerty Jan 6 '13 at 15:35

Most likely your Win 7 computer configured for Network level authentication in RDP properties. Disable it, turn off SSL, make it encryption level "RDP Client compatible" and try again.
