After I use Psexec to update the adobe reader,  I also use the Psexec to run the script to make the default pdf viewer to pdf-xchange in IE ( after update the adobe reader,the default pdf viewer become adobe reader)
but It doesnot work now, after using the Psexec to run the script.
I use it in a domain and I use domain manager account.

That final command that's giving you issues I would remove the "change directory" (cd)

psexec ... "C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF Viewer\PDFXCview.exe /makeassoc:web=true"

Maybe, I also think this issue, so I use  cmd /c  to psexecthe Psexec command as the picture.( as you know , the cmd /c can run multiple command)
Others is same ,  I have try about 12 computers,  about 8 computers works,  but other 4 computer seem to not works.
now I donot know why the 4 computers doesnot work.   I have to manually to run the "Install.cmd" (usually use domain account to run the script on the local computer , it will work  )   but there are 2 computer also doesnot work .  I really do not know why the 4 computer can not work.
there are about 1500 computer in company,  If there 1/3 computers not work,  It will be to bad

Not sure why you are using cmd /c.  the /c just means that the command window is closed when it finishes executing.

What happens if you remove the "cmd /c"?

ie

psexec.exe \\X.X.X.X -u xxxxxx -p 00000 \\resourcepro0.xxxxxxx\xxxx\xxx\Install.bat

cmd /c  in psexec has another use not just close the window, the article in Chinese  http://hi.baidu.com/sdghgk/item/7dc3102c8e2f48d6a517b682

I have try your ways:

That final command that's giving you issues I would remove the "change directory" (cd)
psexec ... "C:\ProgramFiles\TrackerSoftware\PDFViewer\PDFXCview.exe /makeassoc:web=true"

but it seems not work
the error info
Now I want to know why I use Psexec to run the script ,  some computer can works, but some can not work.

thank you for helping me so much,
I have try it using the former ways.  that's updating the Adobe reader with PSexe and after that runing the script with Psexe.
So I have applied it to 1000 computers and now there are about 15 computers to reflect promblems,   I still donot  know whether others has problem thougth they donot reflect.

(there always exist some computers donot effect with running the scripts. I have to prohibit the PDFXviewer at first and remake it as default  manually,  these computer can effect.
the scripts is aim to make the PDFXviewer as the default directly.   )

but at the moment, it seems not bad
