    Use a share?
    Use FTP?
    Use HTTP?
    All sorts of ways two machines could share a file - what did you have in mind?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I dont mean to share the file, I mean to actually make the local computer open and run the program that is already on it, as if it had been opened when you were physically using the computer.

    Sorry I wasnt clear

    these remote programs will do it , but if you want to make ur own go ahead
    winsock is the key

    Yes I wanted to make my own implement it into a program. Thats why I posted it on the programming board

    Does anyone know how I would go about doing this? I have no idea where to start. I dont want to do anything fancy, just something that will allow it to execute a file.

    Just read beej and implement any kind of client/server you care to.

    The server just waits for a connection, then receives a command telling it what to do. It then goes away and does it, and possibly sends back some success/fail.

    Then figure out the security implications of what you're doing.

    You may want to consider Named Pipes. The server side could be installed (and uninstalled if necessary) as a service on the remote computer allowing you to access the remote processes.
