I have a build process that runs on Linux and UNIX hosts. It's script -based, and at the end of the process I'd like to run an EXE file (that can run on Windows only... yes I know it's quite weird but this is the requirement I got). This EXE should be ran on a specific Windows machine.

My question is: Is there any utility or a technique that can send a command-line from the Linux side to the Windows side and launch it locally on the Windows side?

It may sound like psexec. I know it can run from Windows to Linux, but do you know a similar utility that supports the opposite way?

I have personally not tried it, but have you heard of Winexe?

Winexe remotely executes commands on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 systems from GNU/Linux (and possibly also from other Unices capable of building the Samba 4 software package).

Examples from

winexe --user Administrator --password=P@ssw0rd // cmd.exe

Hope this helps
