Initiate remote application/program to run

vantoora asked:

Open original thread
Hi everyone,
I have one idea and I want to accomplish it to be real.

Let say I have two computer (running XP and Windows 7 or 8 or server 2k8).
Or let's give them a name:
timon : desktop
pumba : server

What I need to have is that make an application running as a service on "pumba" and another application (not a service) running on "timon".
When I launch timon_apps with some parameter pumba_apps make something (like opening "notepad.exe" or run a task any task scheduler.
Means that I want to execute the remote application service by executing a local application with a parameter.
For example :
C:\timon_apps.exe /param=notepad.exe /server=pumba

and then "pumba_apps.exe" run as a service on pumba open the notepad application.

Am I clear with my project ?

I do not really want to have a code for that but only the process on how can I achieve this and some suggestions on how to make it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for all.
