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

Or try this.....

Try the -w switch.....

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

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.
