Is there a tool that sends keyboard/mouse 'DirectInput' over network? VNC isnt DirectInput compatible. If there is no such tool. Is it technically doable -> Can a tool control DirectInput annd infuse control message in another Application? ...Or must it act as an add. input devices? e.g. Network >>> App A >>> Input >>> DXInput >>> App B

DirectInput reads the input hardware directly (through hardware drivers). So, you're not going to be able to inject input into it.

However, if you create some kind of buffer/queue mechanism that your DirectInput code dumps it's input into and your app reads from, then you can provide a mechanism for external apps to send input messages to your buffer/queue.

I suspect that that's not what you are trying to accomplish, though. So, the short answer is - no.
