I tried changing the .ini file to the following using your suggestions. For
some reason, the Applicatoin does not give an error, and does not actually
show up on the screen, however, I can see the process in Taskmanager...

Language=Australian English

I believe I don't actually know how to check the 'host name' of this REMOTE
pc. Pinging it from a command line gave me IP:

using this instead of pc340xp, does the same as above ( creates a process
without an interface ).

What am I missing ?

Thanks again,
