For various reasons, i need to forward a single window, as transparently as possible from one windows system to another.

Raw performance is not an issue, there should be a dedicated gig-e connection between the systems in question and i will not be running software where input latency will be a huge issue. I will also need sounds to be handled by the system in which the software is running

The system running the software can run either windows XP professional, or windows 7 professional, and the system i want to forward the window to will be windows 7 professional.

seamlessrdp comes close, but it requires a linux client

You can do the equivilent of seamless RDP with windows via Remote Apps over RDP. This is a feature of Windows Server 2008, but has been made to work with registry hacks and RDP file tweaks on W7, Vista and XP SP3.

It is a bit long to reproduce here, but here is the how to link.

there's no 'TsAppAllowList' entry in my registry by default. The gui configurator seems to have set it up but the rdp file it generates asks for a password, then just closes – Journeyman Geek Oct 22 '11 at 5:40
Yeah it looks like it needs Ultimate or Enterprise on the host in order to enable TS - what are you running? – Paul Oct 22 '11 at 8:40
as per the question, windows 7 professional on both ends at the moment - i can swap the server end to xp pro tho – Journeyman Geek Oct 22 '11 at 9:27
