Windows 7: Run a program remotely?

Run a program remotely?

Hi,

What program can i use to run a .exe file remotely on someone else's machine and have it appear on their display.

Basically i would like to specify a program to run on a remote computer and when it runs i want them to see it, i don't want it to run silently.

Regards,

It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but you can always try TeamViewer.

I've installed it onto most of my customers machines to provide remote support. I usually use a setup with a permanent ID and seriously long password, but for those paranoid customers, I usually call them first and ask them to start TeamViewer and tell me what the ID and Password is.

EDIT: Looks like TeamViewer gets the thumbs up...

Sorry if i didn't explain myself fully...

I want to run a file remotely without actually remoteing onto their PC.
Something like PSExec.exe (although i cant get this to work they way i want it too).

From my computer i want to tell a remote computer to run a file and for it to be displayed on their screen without ever actually connecting

e.g.
Run notepad.exe \\testcomputer-hp\

(bad example but hopefully it helps)

you can use net start to start services, I think you can also use it to run a program from a specific command line. I will try and find some more info on syntax.

psexec probably has to be run as administrator and the program being called has to be run as admin as well....

psservice.exe \\rcomputer -u mike -p 123456 start spooler
Where:
\\rcomputeris the name of the remote computer.
-u mike -p 123456 – is the username and password of the account that has administration rights on the remote computer.
start spooler – is the command to start the service named spooler.

How To Stop And Start Services On Remote Windows Computers


Did you try psservice based on these parameters?

Can the program be accessed as a service or do you need to actually run an exe? I have not had much luck finding the correct syntax for net start. I am finding vague "non-exampled" examples If I find anything useful I will post

When you say a remote machine, do you mean on the same local network as you? If so, you should be able to create a batch file that you can launch after logging in to the other computer. I can't say I've ever done this, but it should work.
