    Ok thanks

    I've only run linux and php servers so running a windows server is foreign to me

    I was not aware a windows server could run desktop .exe software

    they will have the proper environment already installed for you like .net frameworks and whatever a regular pc has?

    you might have to install that but a windows server is almost like the windows computer that you have.. nothing fishy going on in the server technology.

    Great, much appreciated

    I think I can get more out of my software if I run it on multiple servers instead of just my PC

    Again thanks and now I got to do the work

    I've never run remote desktop
    does that take up any bandwidth on my DSL? or we just using it to execute the software
    reason I need to run on server is to run my .exe remotely 24/7 and still do my regular work on my PC
