psexec error system cannot find the file specified
Posted on 2012-04-09
I need to run a program on a local computer using a batch file. I need to runas a different user and I need to save the password. Since runas does not let you save the password I am trying psexec. For some reason, no matter what I try I get the error"The system cannot find the file specified."
The program is in c:\windows\system32. I copied psexec into that folder and ran
psexec \\LocalComputerName c:\windows\system32\ProgramName.exe
I still get the message that the file is not found
I am an administrator and for testing purposes, I am using my credentials.
