PsExec alternative

3 posts in this topic

I am looking for an alternative method to kicking off an AutoIt script on a remote PC other than using PsExec. I am having an extermely weird problem () using PsExec so I am looking for some other method that doesn't use PsExec so I can determine if PsExec is part of my problem or not. I have been trying to read more about WMI, which I know nothing about, to see if it can do what I need but I read a few casual comments about WMI that make it sound like it can't display a GUI or maybe it can't work with a GUI (not sure which). Anyways here is exactly what I need to accomplish:

- Main PC kicks off an AutoIt script on PC's A, B, and C remotely using something other than PsExec

- The AutoIt script that runs on PC's A, B, and C will display a AutoIt GUI and start a Windows application and signon to that application

- I have full access to all PC's.

- All PC's are setup as part of a Workgroup, not a domain

- I sign on to each PC using a local admin account with full access

What happens when you run \\SERVER\path\.exe

If you are the admin and that account is the same on all the machines I would think it to execute normally (albeit in your current session, but should let you know if you have other issues)
