Run a local process

How can I get a Terminal Server application run a local process on the
client system?
The reason for this is that the application we wish to run on Terminal
Server requires a biometric authentication (or low level IO on a floppy DES
disk) during specific transactions. Ultimately, this process returns a key;
so the Terminal Server application will need to run the appropriate program
on the client system to generate this. Any help or reference to a resource
would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Troy

This can be done, you would need to use a Virtual Channel to route that
information back to your server application. MSDN describes the APIs
available for TS:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/termserv/termserv/terminal_services_api.asp

You'd need to implement a client-side plugin dll and the server application
would have to query for the virtual channel.

Cheers,
Drew
