Hi there,

I need to silently and remotely install dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe.

The following command line does not work.

PSEXEC \\RemotePC /i /u DomainName\Username /p password C:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe /i "C:\Temp\dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe" -qb

1)"C:\Temp\dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe" is located on the remote PC.
2)This is not a security nor reachability issue.

Thanks for your help,
Rene

That's not an msi file.  Do you have the msi install file? Not sure if it matters, but I've always used a hyphen with psexec instead of slashes for passing the user and password switch.

Try PSEXEC \\RemotePC /i /u DomainName\Username /p password C:\Temp\dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe /q

You can add in /norestart if you do not want the machine to automatically restart.
