Windows 7: "at" command in cmd, Remote Scheduled Task for NOW

"at" command in cmd, Remote Scheduled Task for NOW

I want to create a scheduled job on a remote computer.

However, I want to create the scheduled job to run NOW, meaning the current time.

For example...

at \\COMPUTER now myCommand

I know that the time parameter has to be in a format like 00:12 or something, but how do I make the scheduled job run at the current time (aka immediately)?

Also, I wouldn't mind if my command ran, say, 5 seconds later. But the point is I want my command to run almost immediately after scheduling.

My intent behind this is simulating an instant remote execution of a program.

Any help much appreciated!!!

Microsoft has a utility for executing jobs on remote systems - PsExec.
