Scanstate.exe erroring when running on remote machines


  • I've been using a Powershell script to run scanstate.exe with appropriate parameters through a remote session using invoke-command.

    I've been seeing a number of machines getting to approx. 50% of the way through the process and then simply stopping

    The error being displayed is


    NotSpecified: (:String) [], RemoteException

    CategoryInfo: NotSpecified

    FullyQualifiedErrorID: NativeCommandError


    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

    Please contact the application's support team.


    When I look in the scanstate.log I don't see any errors.

  • One would think that in my computer/Manage Network drives would be enabled,edited..Or maybe remote desktop in control-panel.Windows cmd doesn't even recognize Scan State/ScanState also,for remote desktop connection(s),use Microsoft /SKYPE
