     This demo project shows one way to easily send a program to another computer on your LAN and run it remotely. Sound impossible? Actually it is pretty easy. I have seen several questions on how to do this recently on the discussion boards and decided to show and easy way. NOTE: THIS IS A DEMO APPLICATION. I know it has some shortcomings and a lack of features...but simple is better for demos. It works. Feel free to use it and spiff it up if you like. Some possible enhancements could be adding the ability to display an image, play a sound, or print a document on remote machines. Network admins should especially have a lot of ideas on how this could be used for maintenance and inventory. Please read the README before posting any comments or questions. If you ask about something that was covered in the ReadMe file, I will make fun of you.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
