    running programs over LAN

    I have a LAN set up at home. One computer is Windows 98SE the other Windows ME. I can copy files across the network without a problem. I would like to be able to run programs on one computer from the other. Some simple programs will run, but programs of any substance (like Office) cause errors. I'm guessing that the local computer is looking for files locally that are on the networked computer.

    Any ideas?

    As you found out MOST programs will NOT run on a peer to peer network. Even to get most to run on a Domain type it requires special licenses

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
