in thread Running exe's remotely

I use a Workstation module I wrote myself. one of the subs returns a WMI handle...

sub get_wmi {
        my $self = shift;
        my $name = $self->name or do { 
                warn("Cannot return WMI handle for anonymous workstation.\n");
                return 0; 
        use Win32::OLE ;
        my $wmi = Win32::OLE->GetObject( "winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate,(security)}//$name");
        if ($wmi) {
              return $wmi;        
              return 0;
You should then be able to do $wmi->CreateProcess("your.exe") or whatever (see for details of WMI)...

Or Google for "perl+WMI" - or visit
