why won't programme files be allowed to be accessed by a networked computer?

If you want to run a particular program, it must be installed in the local computer - you cannot run a program locally from an installation in the remote computer.

You can open files, such as .doc Word files, .xls Excel files and so on, from the remote PC, but the actual Word or Excel program must be installed locally.

What you can do is to control the remote PC over the network with something like RealVNC from click here so that you are opening files on the remote PC with programs installed on the remote PC.
