    Anyone know if this is possible.

    I.e - i want to open a CD drive on a computer remotely from another machine.

    Have found some VBScripts and things, but none seem to do so remotely.

    Any idea's?

    Does this help?

    Particularly the post regarding PSEXEC.

    Thanks NB - checking it now.

    RDP no use for me - it's an April fools effort - i wanted to randomly open peoples CD drives around the office throughout the day, from my own machine :mrgreen:

    I did think about "hide all icons" in GPO - and put a screendump of the users desktop - but thought best not :D

    theres quite an amusing random burp application that you could roll out by gpo most lol's come from installing it on the people who own audi's and porsches. You might be able to use computer management to connect to another pc and go through the storage\library and "inject" which might pop the drive open.

    You can do it simply actually..

    Right click *My Computer or Computer in Vista Win7* select *manage*

    Right click, *Computer Management local* and select *Connect to another Computer* and type in the name / IPaddress of the remote PC.

    then once in the remote session, *Select Storage > Disk Management* in the lower pane, scroll down to the DVD drive. right click and eject.

    I nailed one of the lads with an April fool, called up and said his insurance was void because he'd modified his car (which he has), he was in a non fault a few weeks ago, apparently you could see the blood drain out of him! I wouldn't usually but he's a grad on my team, nuff said :)

    I tend to use 'NirCmd' to do this, is also fun for muting and unmuting their speakers. I used it by dropping it onto their C drive and using a remote CMD prompt (winrs) to run the script and arguments :)
