Register DLL Remotely

Ok, Trying to register some DLLs remotely.  I am using sysinternals psexec, and reserv32.  When I attempt to run my script I wrote for this, I get:

"resvr32 exited on [computer] with error code 3"

The original DLL's are on my machine (where the script is running) under c:\dll\
Here is the script

REM Make Local DLL Path
mkdir \\192.168.2.112\C$\dll
mkdir \\192.168.2.50\c$\dll
mkdir \\192.168.2.143\c$\dll
mkdir \\192.168.2.125\c$\dll
REM Copy DLL's
xcopy c:\dll\*.dll \\192.168.2.112\C$\dll
xcopy c:\dll\*.dll \\192.168.2.50\c$\dll
xcopy c:\dll\*.dll \\192.168.2.143\c$\dll
xcopy c:\dll\*.dll \\192.168.2.125\c$\dll
REM Register DLL
psexec \\192.168.2.112 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\dll\*.dll
psexec \\192.168.2.125 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\dll\*.dll
psexec \\192.168.2.143 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\dll\*.dll
psexec \\192.168.2.50 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\dll\*.dll

The directories create correctly, and files copy, but the do not register (get error 3 on each), which as far as I can tell is a path not found error.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Thanks,
JJ


Also notice that I made the path to the dll's the same as they are on the executing PC, as I cannot tell if the regsvr32 is choosing the path to my local PC or to the remote PC's c:\dll\*.dll.  Also can confirm that the dll's are on the units under the said dir.

OK, so I tweaked the script to:

xcopy c:\dll\*.dll \\192.168.2.112\c$\windows\system32
xcopy c:\dll\*.dll \\192.168.2.50\c$\windows\system32
xcopy c:\dll\*.dll \\192.168.2.143\c$\windows\system32
xcopy c:\dll\*.dll \\192.168.2.125\c$\windows\system32
REM Register DLL
psexec \\192.168.2.112 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\windows\system32\U2ltdate.dll
psexec \\192.168.2.112 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\windows\system32\U2lcom.dll

psexec \\192.168.2.50 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\windows\system32\U2ltdate.dll
psexec \\192.168.2.50 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\windows\system32\U2lcom.dll

psexec \\192.168.2.143 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\windows\system32\U2ltdate.dll
psexec \\192.168.2.143 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\windows\system32\U2lcom.dll

psexec \\192.168.2.125 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\windows\system32\U2ltdate.dll
psexec \\192.168.2.125 -u domain\administrator -p (password) regsvr32 /s c:\windows\system32\U2lcom.dll

Now am receiving error code 4

Save the code snippet as register.bat,  in your PSEXEC working directory. save the dll's as well.....

psexec \\192.168.2.50 -u domain\administrator -p (password) -c register.bat

Thought I would offer an easier method..... Just create a batch file in the context of the renmote machine, and use the -c switch....

And stop switching questions......  Youre confusing me.... :^)
REM Make Local DLL Path
mkdir c:\dll 
 
REM Copy DLL's
xcopy "\\server\share\*.dll" "c:\dll\"
 
REM Register DLL's
regsrv32 /s *.dll
exit

Thanks for responding on this thread, previous one is going to be deleted, and I will be able to assign points.  I'll try this!
Restore may be best, but have you tried registering the dll?  In fact, you may want to do this to ensure you have them all registered:  (Q_22982185)
open a command prompt and navigate to %SystemRoot%\System32
then type the following command to register all DLL files in System32:
for %s in (*.dll) do regsvr32 /s %
Then reboot.
Sorry, wrong thread...
