I am designing a .bat file that uses Plink to execute python files located on a Raspberry Pi. Ideally a user will click on this bat file to execute python code on the Raspberry Pi without having to do anything else. I think the Raspberry Pi is operating on Raspbian. but I'm not 100% sure. This Raspberry Pi has a particular python interpreter on it that I want my .py files to be executed by, which is located at /usr/local/lib/python3.6.
I've had multiple errors, which I've troubleshot, but now I am finding that when I run a bat file containing:
plink -ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -v su root -s /usr/local/lib/python3.6 helloworld.py
I receive the log:

Which is much more promising than the normal laundry list of errors I've seen in my code.
I understand that this is most likely a permissions issue, but I haven't gotten any further after using "chmod -x" on the .py file. This is the last hurdle and I'm itching to get this leg of the project finished! If you have any advise - or even ideas on how to go about this project easier- let me know!
(I'm also aware that using root is bad practice, I'm just desperate and stupid).
