Hello, Maybe someone can assist

Hello, Maybe someone can assist

(OP)
Hello,

Maybe someone can assist me in getting this script to work.
What I want this to do is when ran it will read a list of computers from a text file "computers.txt" and invoke/run a file from a shared location and install it on those machines listed in the text file.

CODE -->

$cred = get-credential $exe = "\\jashare1\IT\CitrixOnlinePluginWeb.exe" $computers = get-content "C:\Scripts\Computers.txt" foreach($computer in $computers) { Invoke-WmiMethod -Name Create -Class Win32_Process -Namespace root\cimv2 -ArgumentList $exe -credential $cred -ComputerName $computer | out-null }

thanks in advance

RE: Hello, Maybe someone can assist

Are you getting errors? What is the output when you run it?

I run it and it prompts for the credentials (a popup window with username and password) to which I supply and acts liek it runs but nothing happens.
It never installs but says DONE.
The credentials are correct and an administrator.

If you run the Invoke-WMIMethod line manually, does it work?

It says "Executing Script" for about 3 seconds then says "Script Execution Completed."
So it doesn't error out but it doesn't DO anything either.

Remove the

CODE --> PowerShell

| Out-Null
from the end and run just that one line again.
