PsExec starts process with peculiar GUI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Assume 2 machines (w10 pro, x64) both in same workgroup, both logged on with same credentials, both GUI's running in session 1, firewall switched off:
    If running "PsExec \\remote_ip -i 1 -d notepad"
    then a window is shown on remote machine, but fairly boring black background etc. (see screen-shot) It obviously reacts on buttons though, similar entering text in client area is also detected.

    However if running "PsExec \\remote_ip -u user -p password -i 1 -d notepad"
    then all is fine.
    Other programs behave similar, e.g. notepad++ does not show user interface at all without credentials (but the process started) and is all ok with cred's given.

    What am I doing wrong here?
