PAExec lets you launch Windows programs on remote Windows computers without needing to install software on the remote computer first. For example, you could launch CMD.EXE remotely and have the equivalent of a terminal session to the remote server. P

AExec is useful for doing remote installs, checking remote configuration, etc.

Microsoft’s PsExec tool (originally by SysInternal’s Mark Russinovich) is a favorite of system administrators everywhere. It just has two tiny flaws:

PsExec can not be redistributed
Sensitive command-line options like username and passwords are sent as clear text

We needed something that would overcome those two issues, and not finding a suitable replacement, decided to write our own.

Anyone can download and use PAExec. You can include it in your open source, freeware and even commercial applications. You may distribute it on your website, on CDs, mail to friends, etc. There is no cryptography built in so there aren’t any export restrictions that we know of.

PAExec \\{server IP address} ipconfig

View network configuration on the remote server without needing to do an RDP session.

PAExec \\{server IP address} -u {username} -p {password} -i -c MyApp.exe

Copy MyApp.exe to the remote server and run it as {username} so that it shows up on the remote server.
