Posted on 1998-11-16
Last Modified: 2010-04-04
I'm using two Win95 system on a lan. From the machine A, I want to call a program on machine B, but I want it to run on machine B. I'm using NetDDE. But no matters which technology I'm using there must be a generic way to start a process (program) on another machine?

In WinNT you need to config NetDDE shares use the DDEShare program, there is a choice: Allow start application. When selected the application can be auto-started on a NetDDE request.

However, DDEShare is not included in Win95, and there seems no options to auto-start Apps in Win95 registry.

Hi, I have just got the DDEshare program than can run under Win95 and seems all the DDEServer program could be auto-started.

I can e-mail it to you, OK?

Ok, you can e-mail it to me at pjroy@bigfoot.com, if it's the only way. Are you sure there is no other way to start a remote process?

I have sent the program to the above address, hope it will help.

You can use DCOM instead of NetDDE as communication protocol, the DCOM app Servers are always self starting. For NetDDE, I don't think there is another way, or say, there is no generic way to start an app on other machine.
