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,
Rene

Where do you see the error code?  Can you tell if the setup.exe program actually gets started on the remote PC, or not?

Does this happen for all computers in the list file, or just some?

Have you tried executing just the psexec from a command line?

Does the setup program actually run on the remote?

Have you tried running some other program like notepad?

Not sure then, you running the latest PSEXEC, I read that there were some quirks with the errorlevel in early versions.

Not much more to offer, but you could try PSEXEC -s -i %%A which uses the LOCALSYSTEM to do the install and -i for interactive to allow it access to the desktop environment.
