Using a windows application between different computers

Posted on 2007-08-01

I am creating a simple windows application. In the application, the user will start by loading in identifiers from his/her computer. The user then needs to go to another desktop computer (Bloomberg Terminal) and run MacroA to download data. MacroA downloads data, and saves the information. Once it is completed, the user can then go back to their own computer.

My question is:

Does the user need to transport the whole application to the 'Bloomberg Terminal' in order to do this?

    I would suggest that it is easier if the Bloomberg Terminal has the application that you need to run installed locally.  The security issues surrounding running an application from a shared location are messy.
