This is not 'installed' in ANY sense. You are running what is known as a 'remote desktop'. In other words, for you to keep using the Windows UI you must have a Windows machine always running somewhere so that your iPad can connect and show you it's screen. So for you to simply have a windows UI on your iPAD you must always have 2 machines running!!

THIS IS NOT A WINDOWS INSTALLATION ON AN IPAD. I'm sorry, because I know that loads of people want anything as an OS as long as its not iOS7. You're out of luck, may I seriously suggest you go buy yourself a Surface 2 or an Acer S7 or even a HP Envy touchscreen. Accept that the iPAd is a TOY not a serious computing platform, give it to your children and return to a useful, productive machine again.
