psexec assistance, parse error

Whats wrong with this? Command echo f|xcopy "\\server\client\connection.RDP" "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\connection.RDP" works fine if you run it by itself.

Pass it through psexec I get Parse Error

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No need for psexec; it's a lot easier to copy that file directly to the clients:

set controlfile=computers.txt

FOR /F %%L IN (%controlfile%) DO (
	>CON: echo Copying to %%L
	echo Copying to %%L
	copy "\\server\client\connection.RDP" "\\%%L\C$\Users\Public\Desktop\connection.RDP"
) >> allpcsresults.txt 2>&1
