Window's Remote Desktop service is installed in versions 7 and up but normally disabled. You enable it via starting the windows service from Control Panel. Once enabled it can be launched via command-line using the MSTSC executable.

Earlier versions of Windows servers/OS's called this Terminal Services and had to be installed as part of an admin toolkit (if memory serves correct).

Now, any additional file-handling functions once control of the machine was achieved could be done via malware or additional software installs as needed

That's completely false in just about every way shape or form. Yes, it's based on the zip file, but that's where the accuracy of your post ends. This is not a measure of compression time, this is a measure of transfer time and the medtadata would tell you exactly how long the transfer took, what time it occurred, and from there you can determine the speed.

That said, this finding proved more problematic, “Due to the estimated speed of transfer (23 MB/s) calculated in this study, it is unlikely that this initial data transfer could have been done remotely over the Internet.” It drew a strong reaction because many computer savvy users and technologists had direct experience with Internet connections that they were certain could sustain those speeds.

The statement as it stands, lacks context, because when written the Forensicator viewed Guccifer 2 as a remote hacker who hailed from Eastern Europe or Russia and used a VPN service or some similar technique to mask his IP. In that context, Forensicator concluded that it would be unlikely for a 23 MB/s transfer rate to be sustained remotely. Unfortunately, that critical assumption was not stated in the analysis.

Even if the 23 MB/s transfer rate can be achieved over the Internet, there are other requirements that must be met by a proposed alternative scenario. A detailed analysis can be found in Alternative Scenarios.

And in case you try to still cling to this weird compression time angle:

There was evidence of two copy operations, one on July 5, 2016 and another on Sept. 1, 2016; both had Eastern time zone settings in force. The file last mod times for the first copy suggested the use of the Unix/Linux ‘cp’ commandb, which is typically used to copy files locally. The files created by the second copy operation had file times recorded with 2 second resolution. This suggested a FAT-formatted media which in turn suggests the use of something like a USB flash drive. The file transfer times on the first copy were in line with the use of a USB-2 device and seemed too fast for most Internet users, especially those using a VPN or some other intermediate system used to mask their IP address.

In order to do a remote desktop operation, there must be software running on the remote machine.

Hmmm.. not really. At least on Windows boxes, RDP is installed (as a feature) by default. However it needs be enabled and permissions set. It often is for many companies (tho probably should not be in secure environments), so employees or IT staff can remote into a computer to work on it if needed. It's not like you need a third party program installed. But you do need VPN to get to the system in most cases, to even RDP in.

Doesn't need to be installed.. it's part of the OS.

It's cute that multiple intelligence agencies have said there is, without a shadow of a doubt, proof that the Russian government was involved in hacking, people still deny it as if they actually know better. It happened.. get over it. The question is if Trump's campaign was involved. I still don't think he was.. NO one is so stupid as to ask the Russian to hack the election during a televised event.. right? hmmm..

Oh wait I forgot.. ALL our intelligence agencies are part of the "deep state" that are ALL trying to undermine Trump. Also the earth is flat.

All those intelligence agencies took the word of Crowdstrike, which has been debunked in my OP an the articles that are listed.

Also the Intelligence agencies "speculated" based on past experience that if the DNC "WAS" hacked by a foreign agency to disrupt our politics, the Russians had more reason to do it than any other nation at that time. which makes it a reasonable guess, but a GUESS nonetheless.

For all of you who are arguing hardware and transfers here, READ Phages indictment link.
I find it interesting to point out

ALL the accusations listed start with this key statement.
"ON OR ABOUT" (Insert month)
which states clearly they dont know "WHEN EXACTLY"
so if evidence of a hack was there, wouldnt they be able to see the logs for exact dates and times?

so going forward, even if malware was used in their system, why publicly available malware that any script kiddy could use?
being script kiddy malware, it does not prove or act in evidence of an OUTSIDE source, as the insider could of done the same thing.

my next post in a few days will be to dismantle how he obtained the Indictment from a Grand Jury.
a hint, they arent what you think they are.
anyways carry on as my OP has yet to have been refuted with any evidence to the contrary
