It may show up very fast, so you may not be able to see it (hopefully).

In Execute Before I have:

net use N: \\filer-software\winrip\RIS /user:filer-software\ntread 
"password" becuase our package.xml file has packages using paths mapped 
to N (we need to change to UNC)

I placed cmd in the "Execute before" and "Execute after" and nothing, 
then I put notepad.exe and got the following message (see attached jpg.)

When I click on Show the message, I receive an alternative desktop that 
is missing the start button and desktop icons and has only the windows I 
requested in the execute before/after.  From this window I can see that  
the NET command I used in my config gives me the message:

" N: has a remembered connection to: \\filer-windepot\windepot" do you 
want to overwrite that connection? Y/N [Y]:

Windepot is the location of our test server.  I switch back and forth 
using 2 separate XML configs to test on our test server or production.

On this alternative desktop I can see that notepad opened up properly.

Any idea why I am getting this interactive services alternative desktop?

I feel we are getting closer..  ;)
