Trying to run commands remote with powershell but not luck

I'm looking for help to run commands on remote computers regarding a line with mcafee agent to get it command run remotely.

$Machines = Get-Content -Path "C:\server_list.txt"
foreach ($computer in $Machines){
  Write-host "Executing Events on $computer" -b "yellow" -foregroundcolor "red"
  $command = Start-Process -NoNewWindow -FilePath "C:\Program Files\McAfee\Agent\cmdagent.exe" -ArgumentList "/e /l C:\temp"
  Invoke-Command -ComputerName $computer -ScriptBlock {$command}

When I executed this command run locally but not remotely.

I'm looking for help here I have not full experience but I'm started automating some task on my job.

Please suggest some tips

I really appreciate it

Cmdagent commands have to be run as administrator.  You might want to use psexec to run the command as system.
