Start application on a remote computer

Hello all,

I need to be able to open applications on other computers using a script or program on my local computer.

Nothing fancy, I just need to be able to fire off something like NOTEPAD.EXE on another PC, say, called "workstation"

I have all admin rights across our network, so permissions shouldn't be an issue.
