    Question Opening programs through a network

    is there any code or function (Win32API) to have a program open or something happen on a another computer or something like that? Also is there anyway to send info back and fourth through programs on computers over a network?
    Thanks in Advance,

    It is a long shot, but you could try using the system function to open up the programs, etc.

    I'm not too familiar with the function, but I believe it has the power to shell a program. I'm not sure what you'd want to do with the network problem (not big into networking).

    Run a search thru the FAQ for sockets/ winsock/ TCIP

    You can run a program on another computer but it will be using your OS not the other computers. (as far as I know)
