I have two Windows 7 PC's with a shared network (home) and I want to be able to share one common application (in development) between the 2 pc's.  

Does anyone know how to do this?

You need to setup IIS on the host machine and configure the security settings on the host machine to allow your secondary machine to connect (I can't remember the settings for this sorry). From there you should be able to bring up the page from your secondary machine by simply going to http://<machinename>/ (depending on config).

Here's a guide to help you install IIS:
