Launching an application on remote machine.
Posted on 2004-03-23
Can any one tell me, how to launch an application (executable) on remote machine from my workstation(In office LAN)?
To do this I m doing following efforts....
1. Copying the application(xyz.exe file) on remote machine using CopyFile() API.
2. Copying a service ( RemoteExeService.exe written by me) on remote machine.
3. Installing, starting the RemoteExeService on remote machine. (from my local workstation).
Now I m putting some code in RemoteExeService to find & execute the application (xyz.exe). basically calling ShellExecute API to execute xyz.exe.
Now problem is that, whenever I m starting service on remote machine, the application ( xyz.exe) is not launching, but I can see this xyz.exe in processes of remote machine (appearing in windows Task manager).
can any one of you give some sample code for service to launch this application ?
I have administrative privileges of remote machine. Even if I m testing it on my local machine the application is not launching.
I really want help to this problem and any usefull input to this problem will get points from me.
Thanks & Regard
