You cannot run a program installed in one computer from a second computer. For example, you can "share" Microsoft Word documents so that they can be opened in any PC on the network, but the program itself, Microsoft Word, must be individually installed in each PC.

What you can do is to run another PC on the network by "remote control" using an application such as RealVNC - click here - but that is still running the REMOTE program in the REMOTE PC.
