Distributed Rendering in Windows - QuickBlend 2.0

Hello -

I created an application for doing distributed rendering in windows without a software client. In order for it to work you will need the following

Server Requirements:

• Quickblend.exe
• Blender installed into C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender
• .Net runtime framework installed (XP)

Client Requirements:

• File and Print Sharing enabled
• An account with administrative rights
• No Firewall, or Firewall configured to allow RPC access from the “server” machine
• WMI privileges enabled for you administrative account
• Windows XP Professional or Server 2003

Blender does not need to be installed on the client machine. This application uses WMI and will not work in linux. Version 2.0 has some bug fixes, along with cleanup on the remote computer when you quit. The source is included if anyone feels like improving it. The app was written in VB .Net.
