Thanks and Regards

You could try psexec from the SysInternals (free) suite. You can download it from here. This excellent suite was developed (mostly) by Mark Russinovich.

Build application/solution and copy bin-folder to the server.
Run exe-file from bin-folder.

That would depend on whether or not the application requires local resources (registry entries, local DLLs, etc). If such is the case then it would still need to be installed on all client machines, but could still be triggered remotely by a server process via psexec. However, psexec would have to be run in the same context (user) as the currently logged on user on each PC.
