    OK, I'm a little stuck. I have two PC's networked together allowing me to access shared folder. Computer A is set up as a makeshift PVR which is connected to my TV while Computer B is my main PC. Everything works a treat however, I would like to be able to run Windows Media Player on Computer A from computer B. I have shared the Folder containing the program however when I access the Windows Media Player folder on Computer A from computer B and run WMPlayer.exe. Windows Media Player just runs on Computer B. How can I get WMPlayer.exe to run on Computer A by accessing it from computer B (Hope that makes sense) :eek:

    If you want to run the program remotely, try a remote desktop utility like UltraVNC.

    OK installed that but I can not get them to connect. The documentation for it is useless aswell (They made it simple but large important bits of info like how to use their product is missing haha). Can you give me a step by step setup or point me to one :)
