Please provide more detail on 'can't run' it from Visual Build Pro. The log entry corresponding to the failure would be very helpful in understanding what didn't work.

Is the error related to not finding the psexec app? If so, the simplest solution is to use an absolute path to the executable you are invoking...

Not sure, it works here with this simple test of psexec on a remote WinXP machine located on a different NT domain.

Attached is the build file and the test script I ran with it. [You'll have to change the computername, user and password values from *** to run it]

A reproduceable case would be helpful for troubleshooting. I can only guess that it is some sort of rights issue, but I certainly don't know for sure...

Oops, after reviewing my post, I didn't attach the file again :-(

It should be attached to this post.

That is odd. In my testing, it succeeds the first time but fails with that error afterwards. One workaround is to redirect the command's output to a file and read the file output (instead of reading stdout). See the attached sample.
