We currently have a Windows server program that lets us launch a Windows application on a remote computer at any position on the screen and then reposition/resize/terminate that application remotely. This remote control of individual applications is not visible on the remote computer, which is good, as we're using this program to control vlc instances on multiple huge monitors in different rooms.
This program is developed by a service company, who has been charging us exorbitant amounts of money per year for service plans and then charging additional money to perform software upgrades that often break the system for days at a time.
Long story short, I'm looking for an alternative solution. Can anyone recommend a solution that will let me, from a central control application, remotely launch/position/size an individual application with minimal screen action/real estate on the remote computer? This solution would have to work on Windows 7.
