I am looking to see how I could run a command and install software from a server share. The command needs to be run with admin permissions. I have this but it is not working:

\\server\share\O365\setup.exe /configure \\server\share\O365\config-pilot-SAC.xml

I would also like to run this whether the user is logged in or not. The user does not have admin permissions either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Network shares don't default to existing in both user and elevated context. You'll need to map or connect to it first in order to be able to access the share from the Commands feature since it's running in an elevated context.

net use x: \\server\share /user:bob "bobspassword"
x:\O365\setup.exe /configure x:\O365\config-pilot-SAC.xml
net use x: /delete
