Good-day,

I have a server computer (windows xp - Home) in which I would like to remotely connect to for administrative purposes.

I have opensshd installed, as well as a listening port for netcat; This seems to work O.K, except when I would like to open a program on the desktop.

For example, if I run calc.exe, the processes is running in the task list, but the app does not appear on the desktop.

I do have VNC running on this computer as well, but I would prefer not to use this.  As well, I tried psexec and the same thing happened...

My question is: how do I launch a program, like windows calculator, from a remote computer?


Thanks for your time

Computers have multiple user accounts. Each account can only interact with it's own desktop (partly true). If you want a program to show up on the desktop then you have to have the program that launches the program run under the same account as the desktop. Take a look at your tasklisk to see the user account that a process is using.

If the process is using the system account and is a service that starts with the computer then you may be able to go into the services applet and check the box to allow the service to interact with the desktop.
