How to enable remote execution of Visual Build and other programs

The VisBuildPro Project and Run Program actions support executing Visual Build and other programs on a remote computer via the Remote tab, and these actions use PsExec for remote execution. This thread explains the minimum requirements for PsExec:

These pages explain additional requirements to enable remote execution on Windows Vista:

Finally, there is apparently a bug on Windows Vista in non-Aero Glass mode (common in virtual machines) which prevents GUI applications from launching properly when started remotely. To work around this problem, either:

1) Run it in the system account (check the 'Run in System account' checkbox on the Remote tab)

2) Use the Console app (VisBuildCmd.exe) instead of the GUI app (VisBuildPro.exe)
