Psexec.exe not working?
I have never used and got it working. I am trying to execute, say, java.exe

psexec -c -f \\%computername% %path%

The problem is that the program executes but is ONLY visible in task manager. The installation box never appears. I have tried multiple programs and doesn't work. I've left it there for about 5 minutes. And no this is not a silent install. PLEASE HELP! Thanks.

What installation box are you trying to see? PSEXEC used on a remote PC will not show the graphic output of a process running on a remote PC. PSEXEC will return the console result of the process running on a remote PC, when the process is over, so you would get would be message: "PSEXEC returned with value: 0" if PSEXEC finishes normally on the remote PC.

Nailed it in one.

Unfortunately, PSEXEC only shows the commandline output. Some installers may have a cmdline version or be able to install the normal one with -silent, so you might be able to use that. If not, possibly look into using VNC?
