Try on one remote computer this:

When you connect to remote pc execute:

Error Code 80020009 can indicate that the path is not found.   Try this (In this example, psexec is located in C:\PSTools.  Modify accordingly for your folder structure):

cmd /K C:\PSTools\psexec \\{smartname} "gpupdate /force /boot"

not working either

I'm quite sure my path is good because the command psexec \\{smartname} gpupdate

(without parameters) is working fine
