I have two windows 7 computers networked and would like to run a program, which is installed on computer 2, on computer 1 but don't really want to install it on computer 1. Is there a way of doing this through the network?
Thank you

You can run a program on computer 2 from computer 1 using one of many avaiable remote control programs but there is no mechanism to execute a program installed on computer 2 on computer 1.

I have been looking at remote desktop in windows and it would probably do what I need. But I have just one question. I don't have passwords on either computers can I still use it without a password
Thanks

Thank you.
I suppose it would be faster for me to install the program on this computer but I didn't want to play around with that if I could get away with out it.

In a word, "No" - that's the basic reason why computers have passwords!
