    Lets say I am working on a project called "Data Encraption Wizard" with another developer that is 3,141.59 miles from me.

    I have completed some coding, and so I do a Copy/Update into my project archive snapshot "Data Encraption Wizard.arx", and then upload that archive to our project web server.

    My co-developer then downloads that archive into his/her archive folder, and then does a Copy/Update into his/her project snapshot!

    P.S. I am assuming we both have the exact hardware... at least the same mobo.

    P.S.S. I have my Archives stored in E:\$ISR-ARX (See Tools > Options > Archives > Specify alternate archive location).

    You may run into problems with windows activation. Also each time you go back and forth you are copying a whole bunch of unnecessary stuff.

    I would try and find a way to setup up everything on both machines and then just exchange your latest files.

    Another thought. set up everything in an identical folder and sync to a folder in another disk. THen exchange that folder. I have all the software (MS office,quickbooks,paperport, etc) setup in an identical manner on all my machines. Then I identified all the files plus my document area, and I synchronize all the machines via an external drive I can see across the network.

    Have you heard of the free Altiris Software Virtualization Solution?
    It seems to me that you are talking about a software and data setup that you want to synchronize with a remote computer.

    Create a layer with the required applications and data, export that layer and send it to the remote destination.
    No identical hardware/configuration required.
