Hi there,

I did this batch file to install Port Reporter on all PCs on my network.

Everything in this script works, but the installation fails with an error code 1.

By the way, I am a Domain Admin.

Could you please tell me what I did wrong?

Thanks for your help,


FOR /F %%A IN ('net view ^| findstr \\PC') DO (
	SET Destination=%%A\c$\Temp\PortRptr
	IF NOT EXIST "!Destination!" MD "!Destination!"
	COPY ".\PortRptr" "!Destination!"
	PSEXEC %%A C:\Temp\PortRptr\pr-setup.exe /a /s
	IF !errorlevel! NEQ 0 (ECHO %%A FAILED>>%~n0.log) ELSE (ECHO %%A SUCCESS>>%~n0.log)
	RD /S /Q "!Destination!"
