How to run SigCheck.exe on Remote Computers?

I can't get sysinternals sigcheck.exe to work via psexec on remote computers.  The process clearly starts on the remote machine (if I connect with Remote Desktop, I can see the sigcheck process running), but my local console just hangs, blank, and won't terminate.
I've scoured the Web but can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.  I've tried it both by including sigcheck in the psexec command itself (either using the -c switch to copy it to the remote machine or by manually copying it first and then specifying its path in the psexec command) AND by just starting CMD on the remote machine via psexec and then running sigcheck from the [remote] command line.  Result is always the same no matter what.

psexec \\[computername] -c sigcheck -a %systemroot%\system32\netapi32.dll
OR
psexec \\[computername] cmd
then
sigcheck -a %systemroot%\system32\netapi32.dll

then run psexec \\computername -c \\path\to\sig.bat

sigcheck -a %systemroot%\system32\netapi32.dll

Works fine locally...

Just try ......

psexec \\computername -c sigcheck -a netapi32.dll

system32 is the default working directory...

And dstewartjr beat me to the punch on the other one, should work fine....

If you have one to test close by, or RDP'ed into, try this......

psexec \\computername -i -c sigcheck -a netapi32.dll

Should pop up on the remote screen....

Dudes, thanks for your prompt replies.  I've tried both of your suggestions, but I'm afraid the behavior is still the same.  Clearly the .bat and sigcheck are running, but I never get the info.  Screen shots attached fyi.
Listen, I'm tired and hungry, and it's not like a server is down or anything. I'm gonna lay this aside 'til tomorrow and look forward to any additional suggestions you might have.  Thanks again; cheers.
