How does a local computer get and retrieve all the text (of a particular window) from a remote computer, just-in-time?

Some more details- basically the local computer is trying to get the result and perform the equivalent of ‘WinGetText_FromRemoteComputer’.

Here’s the scenario, the program script on the local computer will: ask and get some answer from the local user (I can get this easy part working). Then ‘gets windows text’ from Bob’s computer and depending on what the text is; the local computer might ask and get more answers from the local user, or ‘gets windows text’ from Kurt’s computer. And depending on what that text is, the local computer might then do something both locally and on Sam’s computer…

Thanks.

You can't get the remote window text without running it in the local context on that computer. So you need to run a script with WinGetText() on the remote computer.
