I just looked at this problem again and I found a solution. In case
you're still interested, there is a program called PsExec that allows
you to specify the session in which a program can be run.
It can be found here:
When I execute this command when logged on with SSH using FreeSSHd,
notepad shows up on the VM's desktop:
PsExec.exe -i 0 notepad
It may be possible to use PsExec itself to do things remotely, but with
FreeSSHd it solves this issue.
