Setting up Remote Execution and receiving a Access Denied error in Visual Cron.

Running a simple powershell script on the remote server.

1) Using Host Name of the remote Server (remoteserver)
2) Credentials setup as no Local Logon or Load User Profile
3) Command: \\remoteserver\C$\Windows\SysWOW64\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe
4) Arguments: \\remoteserver\D$\Scripts\PowershellLoop.ps1

Both UNC paths can be reached from the client workstation.
5) WMI enabled and running on both computers

Receive the following Error
Exception in Task: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

Checked the exception logs and did not see any indicated error on the client or the remote server.

If someone has done this and has it working please indicated the setup that was needed for the remote execution.
