This 2nd PC where you installed the application - can you link to the sql server across the network ok?

Try PINGing it, sharing directories etc to be sure.

Is it a different operating system (like Vista) ?

Sounds like a network configuration issue, but hard to diagnose with no details on operating sustems, user details etc
