Hello. I wonder if there is a way to start programs on a different machine in a local network from another computer without having a server on the machine I want to start the program. Etc.: Let's say I want to start Notepad.exe from anonther computer.

Is there a client program on the machine you want to run notepad on? I'm not sure I understand your question.

I actually found this program:

to do what I was looking for. But I was wondering if there was some inbuilt functionality in VC to do this.

You can use Process::Start(); in System::Diagnostics


e.g.,:

using namespace System::Diagnostics;

...

Process::Start("notepad.exe");

or just do: System::Diagnostics::Process::Start("notepad.exe");

Either way the .NET way is much easier.
