Socoder -> Off Topic -> From one PC to another...

My new Super-Vista PC is still super-annoying.
The "DevKitPro" compiler issue is yet to be solved, so although I like to type things on my new PC, I then have to switch over to the old PC to compile my NintendoDS Homebrew.
I currently have RealVNC hooked up, so simply tapping Ctrl-Shift-OddKey (the one beside 1), will switch me between the two PC's, but it's still a pain to have to keep doing that.
My question then, is this..

Does anyone know of any way to have an Icon, or Keyboard Shortcut that will cause an exe on a different PC to run ON that PC, as opposed to running on the PC that clicked it?
(That way I can have "Make" on standby, and run it on the other PC)

How did you connect the two computers? via lan?

Yeah, they're directly connected via a standard crossover cable. Nothing fancy.
I'm sure it's something simple, but am equally sure that having Vista on this PC and XP on the other will cause hundreds of stupid little issues

Couldn't you use Remote Desktop?

Well, you could always create a little blitz program, to transmit a packet over the network, which would be picked up by the other comp, and then you could use the run command or something to run an app.

This would also mean you could customize it to your own needs, however, I'm not brilliant with blitz network commands...

Couldn't you just make a batch file on the other comp. and then use a blitz program to run that batch file?

Is it really worth the trouble of making all of these programs? They all sound a bit too complex for such a small task...

Meh, I'll fiddle!!

But like Shroom says, it's not really worth all the messing about with. I could always just crouch over and hit the other keyboard.. I was just trying to be lazy, is all..

OMG!! That runs the exe on this PC, not that one.
