psexec and folders with spaces

Good Morning,

I want to take this:

Run("cmd.exe")
Sleep(1000)
Send("cd /{Enter}")
Sleep(1000)
Send("cd pstools{Enter}")
Sleep(1000)
Send("psexec \\192.168.26.17\ cmd.exe{Enter}")
Sleep(5000)
Send("cd /{Enter}")
Sleep(2000)
Send("cd Program Files\WebHelpDesk{Enter}")
Sleep(2000)
Send("whd_stop.bat{Enter}")

and make it into something like this

Run("c:\psexec \\192.168.26.17 -s c:\program files\webhelpdesk\whd_stop.bat")

However when I run the second one, I get an error that states that PSEXEC is already running on the remote PC. It would appear that it is trying to run the script however something in the translatation is causing PSEXEC on the remote PC to hang. Any ideas on what is wrong with the script? I goal here is to execute the remote batch file but have the cmd window open and showing the results on my local PC.

Thanks,

Grimm

Does this work?

Run('c:\psexec \\192.168.26.17 -s "c:\program files\webhelpdesk\whd_stop.bat"')

edit: Removed URL tags when copied and pasted

edit: I am assuming that path and file exists on the destination machine?

      I'm attempting to capture the output from the command line tool PSEXEC. I'm using AutoIT to run an instance of PSEXEC against a remote PC to audit Local Admins in my environment using net.exe (C:\Windows\System32> net localgroup administrators). However the usual trick I use to capture command line output does not appear to work well with PSEXEC, as the bottom portion of the output is missing from the return. Any ideas or recommendations are greatly appreciated.  
       
      Here is what I'm working with: 
      ;This script will read from a list of hosts and report who has local admin privileges on the machine #RequireAdmin Global $fileName = @ScriptDir & '\test.txt' ;hostlist, one host per line readHostList() ;Read list of hosts Func readHostList() Local $file = FileOpen($fileName, 0) While 1 $line = FileReadLine($file) If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop ConsoleWrite($line & @CRLF) ;MsgBox(0,0,$line) getLocalAdmins($line) WEnd FileClose($file) EndFunc ;run PSEXEC to list local admins Func getLocalAdmins($remotePC) Local $testFile = @ScriptDir &'\test234.txt' FileOpen($testFile, 1) Local $psexec = 'psexec \\' & $remotePC & ' net localgroup administrators' FileWriteLine($testFile, _RunCmd($psexec) ) FileClose($testFile) EndFunc ;Used to return CLI output Func _RunCmd($sCommand) Local $nPid = Run(@Comspec & " /c" & $sCommand, @SystemDir, @SW_Hide, 8), $sRet = "" If @Error then Return "ERROR:" & @ERROR ProcessWait($nPid) While 1 $sRet &= StdoutRead($nPID) If @error Or (Not ProcessExists ($nPid)) Then ExitLoop WEnd Return $sRet EndFunc  
      ## If i manually run the command on the remote PC via PSEXEC I will get the following output:

      I have enabled admin sharing in the remote machine so that I can copy files to the remote machine use PSEXEC to execute our application remotely.
        Now, if the machine is poweredoff we need to poweriton. So I checked whether the remote machine, it is of both VirtualBox or VMWare one. For VirtualBox or VMware, I have found command line utities to poweron.   But to autologon by skipping the login screen.Can anyone suggest how to do the same.If it is a physical machine, then there is no need to poweron but autologon is required.   I am trying for windows machines.Win 7 at present.   For VirtualBox I checked below link with help og guestadditions but not working. http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#autologon   The below procedure will save the password in that machine and it will logon automatically.   http://www.howtogeek.com/112919/how-to-make-your-windows-8-computer-logon-automatically/   But it will give access to everyne.But my opinion is he should access only if have credentias.I mean through any commandline from another machine he should trigger logon also by passing credentials.     Similarly this also   http://www.cnet.com/how-to/automatically-log-in-to-your-windows-10-pc/   http://superuser.com/questions/28647/how-do-i-enable-automatic-logon-in-windows-7-when-im-on-a-domain   http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/ht/auto-logon-windows-7.htm   http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/windows7/windows7_auto_logon.htm   https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ee872306.aspx   Please guide me how to proceed.

      I am trying to spawn a cmd.exe shell on a remote machine using psexec then proceed to running commands on that machine and reading the output. I.e. running pwd. 

      Unfortunately, the code I have now will just immediately exit cmd on the remote system 
      I'm trying to use the current code
      #include <Constants.au3> $pid = Run('C:\Users\test\Desktop\psexec.exe \\192.168.1.123 -u test -p "P@$$word1" -h -s cmd',@SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDIN_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) StdinWrite($pid,"pwd") StdinWrite($pid,@CRLF) Local $data Sleep(2000) $data &= StdoutRead($pid) ConsoleWrite("Debug:" & $data & @LF) StdinWrite($pid,"cd ") StdinWrite($pid,"C:\users\test2") StdinWrite($pid,@CRLF) StdinWrite($pid) $data &= StdoutRead($pid) ConsoleWrite("Debug:" & $data & @LF) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19206834/command-prompt-and-autoit-stdinwrite <- credits to this stack overflow post
      Unfortunately, on my end, my cmd just starts/stops with this prompt
       
      Connecting with PsExec service on 192.1.123...Starting cmd on 192.168.1.123... cmd exited on 192.168.1.123 with error code 0. Any ideas how I can keep my shell open over psexec and still interact with it using AutoIT?

      Any feed back would be amazing! Thanks!

      When I run a program in remote vm virtualbix machine windows 7 64 bit with psexec from my current machine.   It is working fine in system context. C:\Users\kirud01>"C:\Software\application packaging\PsTools\PsExec.exe" -s -i -d "\\erwin-pc" -c -f "C:\Build\delete.exe"   But when I run the same in user context i.e., without -s parameter. The screen is getting freezed in the remote machine. Could you please help me on this. If possible any alternatives for PSEXEC in AutoIT code itself.
