I've been playing around with trying to use WDC remotely on machines without pestering the user of the PC and I've noticed what I think is a bug in language handling, and maybe the handling of the config file. If I run WDC from the screen on a machine it correctly opens in Spanish and displays the options I have selected. I am running the exe from a command prompt and have CD'd to the directory where WDC is stored. So far so good. However if I use psexec to remotely connect to the same machine and cd to the directory and then type WiseDiskCleaner.exe -a it opens on the console of the machine, but in english. It also displays the notifications about having sucessfully run, which I think I have disabled. It makes no difference if I connect as the logged in user or as the administrator account, it does exactly the same. Has anyone tried using WDC via script or psexec, or remote execution of any kind? This problem can be reproduced by doing the following from your own PC: Download psexec from microsoft (www.sysinternals.com) Open a cmd window psexec -u <localhost>\<local admin> \\<pcname> cmd once you have the remote command shell open cd c:\wisediskcleaner\ (or where ever it is) wisediskcleaner -a this will launch the exe remotely but the systray icon displays on the console of the PC, as does the sucess message.
