I have 2 PCs in my home, one running XP connected to a Linksys wired router, and the other running Vista which is connected via a Linksys wireless access point. They share a printer connected to the router. The Vista machine came with(OEM) MS Office and I would like to use MS Excel from the XP machine which does not have it. The EULA does not permit installation of the program on the other PC but it does permit the end user to access it remotely from another device, ie. the XP machine. I do not know how to physically accomplish this. Can anyone offer some advice?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Thank you for those links. What I found, though, was that the remote desktop connection which is the subject of those guides, is not available in the home versions of the OSs. Unfortunately, I am dealing with XP Home and Vista Home Premium, which I failed to mention originally. If there is another way to skin this cat I would appreciate learning about it.
