hi we had developed a small software in which we tried to control a remote pc by a central pc.we tried to do something more like an installation.but we do not have a control over remote application after we execute setup.exe on the remote pc.but there may be many decisions to be made during the installation.
here we want to install from a central pc therefore we need to take every decision from the central pc like pressing i agreee button.
is there a way to somehow do that directly from central pc i e pass all the required information and the whole installation continues without any further input form anybody?
another problem is we want to use the hardware resources of the remote pc say for example the ram of the remote pc.
I assume by "PC" here you mean a Windows computer. There are many commercial packages which do what you want to do, and do them well, including Microsoft's own "SMS" software. Java is very ill-equipped for this kind of project, because Java has no APIs for all the Windows-specific puffery you'd need to do. Java is about the worst possible language you could pick to write this in -- if you really need to write it at all.
