File Opening on a remote Computer

Asked By 120 points N/A Posted on -

Hey, I have a windows 7 Pc on my work network and using PsExec I have a remote command prompt open of my friends machine in the office. I thought by just typing e.g. picture.jpg, it will open the image in their folder on their screen but it does not. I have even tried start “pic.jpg”, am sure am missing a simple cmdlet and I need help with the correct cmd that I can use to make it work.

File Opening on a remote Computer

Hi Tyrone,
It is possible to open a jpg through remote command prompt opened in the remote machine.
The document you are trying to access must be available on the remote computer. So before calling psexec, the doc has to be copied there.
Check if this command works.
cmd.exe /c START c:pathtodocument.jpg
