Yea, I've logged in using those credentials to access regular shares and still being unable to shutdown the computer remotely. Maybe it's a combination of factors?

Yup :)

And when I did it prompted me for a User/Pass. When I entered that I could access the share AND shutdown the computer remotely.

What does this mean though, that all along I wasn't logging in as admin?

Using the GUI. Although you weren't the first person to suggest this.

If you say it's a permission issue, then how come I can still access the shares on the remote computer that I'm trying to shutdown?

How about workgroups? If the computers are on different workgroups, or say one belonged to a domain and the other to a workgroup?

Simple File sharing disabled and still no dice.

Do I have to be on the same domain for the shutdown to take place?

Yup.

Computer A (doing the shutdown) can remotely shutdown computer B but not computer C for some reason. I'll try disabling simple file sharing.

On a side note, doesn't that registry option look like the one in gpedit where it forces network users to authenticate as guest?

I believe it's a combination of 2 factors, or maybe 1.5

1. I need the username/password of the remote computer that I'm trying to shutdown. That I have.

2. I need to enable a service on that computer. Any one know what that might be?

Is there an error message of some sort when you try to shutdown the remote computer? In the Security or System Event Logs? Have you tried the /f (or -f) switch to force all open applications to terminate? Can you terminate using the GUI interface (the /i or -i switch)? Yep, it gives an "Access...

Guys, thanks for the suggestions so far, I tried mapping a network drive but no luck. Both my friends and I believe it is a service that's not running. Anyone know what this is?

Wouldn't that mean storing a password of sorts on the computer? If so is there any way to remove the password memory feature of a mapped drive?

The computer is not logged, and the remote computer has a user (adminstrators group) logged in.

I can access the computer via Remote Desktop no problems, just wondering how come I can perform a remote shutdown.

Hmm, fair enough. Since the CISC processors and GPUs are totally optimized for different operations, it's quite probably difficult to achieve that.

Yes, in the [Paths] options, I've added the folder containing the libraries that I downloaded in the PDK and still no dice. If DevC++ is similar to VC++, then you are missing one step. Specifying the path allows the linker to find whatever lib that you specify in the linker options, but you still n...
