How do I use psexec or a vbs script to run 2 .exe files on remote computers?
Posted on 2009-04-02
I need help using psexec or a vbs script to copy and run 2 executables files on 200 remote computers. The two files are required to update an existing client application.
The first exe file stops the running process of the application. The second exe file updates the client application. Both exe files have to first be copied to the c:\program files\application path
on the remote computers. I've tried using 3 separate psexec commands to accomplish this but it isn't working; the files get copied and I get exit 0 on the next 2 steps but the updated application doesn't launch properly. If I copy the files and run the 2 exe files from the console of a computer it works fine. I'd like to do this with one script. The comands that I use are below.
1- psexec @computernames.txt -c c:\program files\application path\file.exe
2-psexec @computernames.txt c:\program files\application path\stop_process.exe
3-psexec @compternames.txt c:\program files\application path\update_app.exe
