Hi @ all :-)
I've a little problem and hope that someone in this forum can give me
some good advice.

I want to run a LabView6.1i application which is running on PC1 in a
Labview6.1i application on another PC2.

In general a LV application is running on my server PC1. On Client PC2
another LV application for measuring data is running. I want to access
now from my application running on PC1 the other application on PC2
which should run in the same application window like application on
PC1.

Hope that someone has good ideas how to solve this problem and thx in
advance for your help
mike

What data will you be accessing? Are they built applications (.exe)?
What kind of communications are you using, ethernet, serial? You can
use the functions under the application control subpalette and open
references to applications across a network by specifying the computer
name. You can also access front panel controls using properties nodes
and using this previous method. If the two applications are
independent but share data try using datasockets.
