Try:

picpath = "\\computer2\photo"

but depending on how sharing is set up on computer2 you may or may not have permission to access that directory.

If you are really stuck, and you are always going to be accessing the same directory on the same computer, you can map one of computer1's drives to the photo directory on computer2 in which case you code could be as simple as:

(assuming that you have mapped E: to be \\computer2\photos)

Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture("E:\test.jpg")

Of course, I'm not even sure you can load a jpg into a picture box.
