    I am trying to run a executable with psexec from a remote machine but
    failing and giving me error code 128

    psexec \\remotehost \\anotherremotehost\share\setup.exe

  2. What happens when you start with a simple command?

    psexec \\remotehost cmd.exe

    You can build up from here and try your setup.exe command.
    Note that psexec.exe does NOT support a GUI. You can
    only run console commands.

    ok I think I got it to work

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>psexec \\remotehost -u "domain\user" -i

    I had to enter the domain user name. What do I do if I want to use the @file
    with more than one hostname?

  4. Congratulations! You just found out that running psexec.exe by
    itself will launch a session under the "System" account, which, of
    course, has no access to networked resources.

    What do you mean with "@file"?
