It is possible by set the privilage level. You need to use "share" to realize it. Then you can use the harddisk on the other machine just like your own.

Programmatically: you will have to write a server app that runs on the target machine, and will talk to your app through sockets or somesuch thing. This server app will spawn off programs upon receiving a particular message from your app.

If you don't want to program it, try PCAnywhere or other messaging applications.

Wait a minute... Why is no one considering RPC's?  They're not hard to do, and they'll do exactly what you want to.
