LinkOpen problem

Dear All,
 I use to run a local installation of Mathematica 8 on a Windows 7
machine.
To "talk" to an external program (dos executable-> myprog.exe), I used
the following code:

command = "myprog" <> macro;
LinkOpen[ command]

Probably this is not the most elegant solution but it worked!

Now I am running a remote installation of Mathematica 8 on a windows
xp machine and the same command does not work anylonger. The error I
get is:

LinkOpen::linke: Could not find MathLink executable. >>

and a window opens that asks me to "Choose a MathLink program to
launch".

Can anyone help me with this?

thanks, Luigi


PS: I have also tried Run[command] but no results!
