    CMD network problem

    I'm experiencing a problem on Windows 8. I'm trying to execute a .bat file located in a shared folder (on another pc that runs Windows Vista), and i'm receiveing errors. First, when i tried to execute the file, shows an error saying that cmd doesn't recognize the command. Then, i managed to mount that folder as a virtual drive, and that error got away. But when i try to access the program, an installation error pop up.

    The curious thing is that if i execute the program directly from this pc, there is no trouble at all. But i need to connect to the other pc, because ths program needs to be uptaded every minute (this program manage the book shop where i work at).


    p.s.: Sorry for my bad english

    How are you accessing the bat file on the other PC?

    You can mount the shared folder via net use:
    >net use /?
    The syntax of this command is:
    [devicename | *] [\\computername\sharename[\volume] [password | *]]
            [/USER:[dotted domain name\]username]
            [/USER:[username@dotted domain name]
            [[/DELETE] | [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]]
    NET USE {devicename | *} [password | *] /HOME
    So net use z: \\Otherpcname\sharedfoldername then z:\xxxx.bat should work.

    Or run the bat file via a UNC name:

    \\Otherpcname\sharedfoldername\xxxxx.bat should work.

    If not, what are the exact, complete error you receive.

    Thanks Ztruker for the fast answer!

    I've tried using "net use" command and via UNC, but the error persists. The program itself shown an installation error. I've also tried to run it on DosBox. There, the status window shows the following error: "Warning: file (filename) exists and failed to open in write mode. Please remove write-protection" (on several files).

    The .bat file is: "RUN ULTRA k". The folder has a lot of .cob files, i guess it's because it's running on COBOL.

    When you run the bat file, it is running on your computer, not on the one the bat file resides on so it won't work. \ if you expect it to process the .cob file on the remote computer.

    The only way this would work is if you can remote connect (Remote Desktop??) to the remote computer.

    Oh, ok. But if i remote connect to the other PC, i'm still able to use the program on the other PC simultaneously?
    The thing is: we have 2 PCs working simulteanously, and we need to run the program with the database at the same time.

    Why not set the batch files to run at specified intervals on both computers then? No remote action would be needed.

    Or use PsExec as shown in this article:

    How to run a program on a remote pc via command line?
