Default Run File from PC1 on PC2

A friend of mine needs help:

"I am having 2 pc's connected to the same domain. One pc (PC1) is having an exe file and what I want to do is from another pc (PC2) I want to start/run that exe file which is in PC1. Moreover it should be running on the PC1 and should not be visible to me and I will be sitting on PC2. Any help will be greatful. "

Just as his last sentence... Any help would be greatful.

Well you need to set up remote access to PC1. (There are *possible* ways to do this from PC2 using 3rd party programs but doing from PC1 would be the easiest). Control Panel -> System -> Remote. Then check the box that says : Allow users to connect remotly to this computer. After that, I suppose you would just connect to them in an explorer window using computer name or ip (Im not sure ive never connected remotly to another computer). Hope this gets you started.
