Hi Peter,

Yes it is, but there is a negative aspect in that it does create an initial high network traffic load.
Simply place EXE and runtime files in same directpry on the server.
Exe must take into account that loacl file must still be local and may have to be copied from the server to the local workstation. Files such as:-
local file's required
foxuser

Which if required can be copied to the local temp directory.

You may exprience problems with unregistered OCX files etc.

If you have specific problems please come back with more detail. I have used this method to run an app on any one of 1500 workstations and it can be done.

HTH
Regards
Ryss
