Anyone know is this is possible? I'm trying to create a simple windows

You have to use web services to do it remotely. Any application accessing
the sharepoint  assemblies will fail out if SharePoint isn't installed
locally.

The web services only provide a subset of functionality and don't provide a
lot in the way of admin  functions.

You could consider writing your own Web Service to implement the
functionality that you want to remote.
