I am going to take a look at these and get back to you.

I have used PSExec before, but I am looking to do this programmatically with VB.

I will let you know.

Thanks,

The third options seems to work for me, I have set it up and I can execute the remote process.

I even see the process start in Task Manager, as a process, but the application never displays and does not run the code.

For instance, when the process starts it should perform a specific task, but it never does.

It loads as a process and then never exits or performs any actions.

Hope soemone can help me figure this out.

Thanks,
