    I have a exe file on remote computer which opens a browser and run some test cases when i run it. Now, When i try to run the same exe file remotely through PowerShell script it is not working as expected and giving some wrong output. If i login to remote computer manually and run the exe file it is working as expected.

    i need to open a new remote session then open a new command prompt and then run the exe, how can achieve it through PowerShell script. Below is the script i have written

    $Username = 'MYDomain\Prabha-K'
    $Password = 'pas@123'
    $pass = ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText $Password -Force
    $Cred = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $Username,$pass
    Invoke-command -ScriptBlock { & 'C:\nxtdr\SmokeTest.exe' -something "AllTestCases"} -Credential $cred -Verbose -ComputerName

    Remote sessions don't have a full user profile and can't run anything GUI-based. That's likely the difference.

    You could put the exe in the StartUp programs and use powershell to restart the computer.
