Hello Experts,
What would be necessary for my team of four Visual studio programmers to build a simple but very customized remote control for Windows desktop pcs?

What language would you suggest and if there is any other idea or source example ?

Best regards

PD. We have been paying for logmein and teamviewer and also used free vnc but we would like to have something that addresses directly our needs.

It is basically client - server solution over tcpip. Server is running remotely ... Client send some packet/command (like GetScreen), server make screenshot and compress image. Server then send back compressed image to client which then show it on own screen.

Here you have blog about same problem using rdp:
