Run VBS scripts remotely using Schtasks command.

I would like to run a vbs script remotely on my many work stations in my domain using the schtasks command.  I can get it to run but it will not run interactively like the AT used to.  I need to notify my users that they need a critical update.  Send a console message has been turned off so I would like to run a "Notify" script.  Windows XP. I also tried a bat file to start the script on the remote machine, but again it will not work  interactivley it just runs in the background.  Using  cscript.exe //I switch  in the bat file does not work.  Both the script and the bat files work correctly if I am sitting at the machine.  I  just can't get it to work remotely.

Let's see...what have you tried?
What's in your script currently?  Is it just a msgbox of sorts?
What if you pass it through cmd?
Schedule it as

cmd /c start c:\yourfile.vbs

Thanks, Sirbounty.  I found out what my problem is.  I was running the task as the SYSTEM account which does not have interactive permissions.  So I will us the AT command instead.

Sure - but AT will default to this.  AT can only use SYSTEM account.
If you want to specify one - use schtasks and refer to a specific account in the RunAs box
