There is a data program on one pc on my office network which I'd like to access remotely from my own desk. If I could I'd install it on my own pc but alas, its time expired and won't instal - but the info is still relevant.

What should I try?

Something like VNC or RDP is probably your best bet here. You're not likely to be able to run the app itself locally, as it probably needs access to the original computer's registry.

Wasn't your username something else before? or are you just using the same avatar as someone else?

It was previously 'Bletch'. Sharp-eyes beetle spotted the change first, on the day it happened :thumbs:.
