run a windows exe remotely from a linux command line?
Hi all,

Is there a way to send commands to a windows XP machine from a Linux command line so that they run on the XP machine and not the linux box?

I have a windows specific piece of software that when ran will run through its process and then quit. looking at the software forums it doesn't look to be supported in wine either.

you can try for example sshd on windows

You could look at winexe.

coming back to this.

I've got Cygwin installed on the Windows machine and can remote ssh into it without an issue.

Is there a way I can ssh into the xp machine and run a windows program from the command line that will execute on that machine and not try running it through the terminal interface. The software i need to run is automatic and i just need to run the software with the correct switches.

I'm currently doing it by the use of a "watch" folder system that monitors the folder for changes and runs the program.

probably you can write a bat or cmd file to execute it. also there is a command named start in windows.
