I am running a command to open a firefox browser on some windows machines:

psexec @VMS.txt -u user -p password -d "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

when I log via remote desktop into one of those machines, I don't see the firefox window. But, when I look in the task manager's process tab I do see the firefox.exe process. Why is that, and how do I fix it so that when I login to the machine I will see firefox?

I needed to add -i to the command:

psexec @VMS.txt -u user -p password -d -i "c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

That solved it
