How can I connect my laptop to my desktop in order to use software?

Question by Ariana: How can I connect my laptop to my desktop in order to use software?
I have Adobe Lightroom on my desktop computer and can’t find the software disc I used to install. My favorite editing software is on my laptop. Is there a way to connect my laptop and desktop so that I can use Lightroom on my laptop and/or my editing software on my desktop?

I THINK you might be able to use WAMP server (for windows) to upload the link for the software.

Example: You may or may not have an icon on the desktop of you laptop to Lightroom. What you would do, is you would figure out how to forward your ports, upload the link icon to Lightroom, and then just type in your ip address into the url bar of any web browser.

I have NO clue whether or not this would work, but you can try.
