Hello,

I have an idea of programation, and I would like to know if it's possible.
Is it possible to share a program's display between two computers?
I mean not only a screen capture like in VNC, but really share an application, for assistance or something else.

Maybe we could emulate a screen (like daemon tool emulate CD driver), and share it? I'm not keen on a specific language.
Every help will be apreciated.
Thank you from France ;).

It's possible and a few tools are out that do it.

Hi Groovicus,

If you say yes, you certainly know how we can share the display of a program between two computer (without use screen capture)?
Thanks

I didn't find anything to share the display of Word for example. What do we could use?

You didn't ask how it can be done, you only asked if it was possible. :thumbsup:

VNC is capable of doing what you are asking. I'm not sure where you got the idea it is for screen capture. There are a number of other software packages as well. Win XP and above has Windows Remote Assistance built-in.

I have used TeamViewer, RemoteAdmin and VNC to do what you're talking about. One caveat is that if one desktop is in control of the cursor the other can't get control until it is relinguished by the other.

Webconferencing is a little different in that it is more directed at an audience being able to view what is being displayed on a presentation screen. The participant's usually aren't able to control the remote machine.

Thank you for your answers. You understood a part of my problem.
I ever studied webconferencing, VNC, LogMeIn... but I think they can't answers that I hadn't expose.
I want to drag and drop a program (MSN, Word) on a second screen as if it was a videoprojector, even if it's a remote desktop! Does that exist? Do you have tips to do that?

I'm not sure (I'm not specialist on it), but I think that VNC make really fast screen capture and send it to the other computer, in order to emulate the display of the first one.
