    It works for me - you don't install it - just put the .exe somewhere and then specify where when you call it.

    This works for me on local machine (I saved it to my OneDrive):
    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.16299.248]
    (c) 2017 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>%userprofile%\OneDrive\Programs\SysinternalsSuite\PsExec64.exe -a 1 -abovenormal "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\WINWORD.EXE"
    PsExec v2.2 - Execute processes remotely

    Sysinternals -
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\WINWORD.EXE exited with error code 0.
    What error are you getting?

    Are you wanting to use it without specifying where it is? In that case you would have to add the location you saved the .exe to your path environment variable.

    Are you trying to run remotely or locally? This thread suggests for remote commands you need it in your path (on remote box) and to specify user/password.
