Help required to send open command to remote system using PSEXEC

Hi,

 When I enter the following code into cmd or in a batch file and run locally, it works perfectly:

"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects 7.0\Support Files\AfterFX.exe" "-wf  V:\01_AE_Watch_Folder\"

However trying to use the above line with PSEXEC to open the ap remotely like this:

psexec \\IP_Address -i -s "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects 7.0\Support Files\AfterFX.exe" "-wf  V:\01_AE_Watch_Folder\"

Opens the AfterFX.exe fine but doesn't open it in Watch Folder mode which it does when I either run the batch file locally or by pasting the first line of code into cmd as mentioned above.

any ideas?

Thanks

Right checked ...

-c option will copy the file first.  You can't specify logged on user, only a speciifc user using -user so I think you need to map the drive first:

So batch file on your system or network drive somewhere then run it with the -c option:

psexec \\IP_Address -I -c c:\scripts\yourbatch.cmd

@echo off
rem Run the prog remotely
net use v: \\server\share /user:username password
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects 7.0\Support Files\AfterFX.exe" "-wf  V:\01_AE_Watch_Folder\"
rem Should delete the batch file once run
del %0

I imagine the drive V: isn't  avaialble to it?  Havent got the syntax to hand to check but I imagine that will run it as a local system user and not the currently logged in user.  You could copy a batch file containing a net use command for v: then run your commandline or run it against a local c: path I guess.  There is an option to copy and run a batch using psexec afai rememeber.

Can't check correct syntax at the moment because I'm on a pda but I seem to remember an option to run psexec as the logged on user?
