How to Read Remote PC file and Show in your PC window

Sometimes you may need to read a file which exists in Server PC and want to show in your Client PC. To make it simple Lets say i want to read an Excel file which exists in a remote machine and want to show in my client machine.

By following code we can do that easily.

FileInfo finfo = new FileInfo(@"\\\D$\Leave information.xls");
bool exists = finfo.Exists;

if (finfo.Exists)

         MessageBox.Show("File Not Found");

// Here my remote PC address is and The Excel file located in D drive 

You may place the above code into any button click event
