i'm working on a project where i need to do some stuff with remote computers. My problem is that i need to execute some program on a remote machine, but working on my computer. To be more specific, i want to run notepad.exe (or any program) on my computer but the execution is assigned to the remote computer.

I've trying with RPC but i think it's just running a program on the remote machine.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You can do one thing install teamviewer or vnc client on your machine and access your remote machine and just execute normal commands

Thanks for your help but i can't use VNC or Teamviewer. What i need it's like an application running on my desktop, but the execution is made by the remote computer. – user1586264 Aug 9 '12 at 1:38
@user1586264: You might have to explain why you believe you can't use VNC or Teamviewer. Can you use Remote Desktop? These are the programs that are designed to solve your exact problem. – Greg Hewgill Aug 9 '12 at 3:19
I can't use those programs because i need to manage the communication on CMD. It's like an application server. – user1586264 Aug 9 '12 at 10:34
