comment Uninstalling programs silently via CMD
You can run this against remote computers by adding /node:"<ComputerName>" ex: wmic /node:"someuser-pc" product get name. Be sure that you use "" around the name or you will run into the "Invalid Global Switch" error. Also be sure you run this from a CMD prompt and not a PowerShell prompt as the "" workaround for the "Invalid Global Switch" error doesn't work in the PowerShell prompt.

comment What is the equivalent to the Linux File command for windows?
I downloaded cygwin and then was able to copy the cygwin install directory to the system I wanted to run the file command on and was then able to call the file.exe command underneath the copied cygwin directory without "installing" cygwin on the target system.

comment Is there a tool that can determine the file type from containing data?
The linked to version of file is 5.09 which was released back in [2011] (ftp.astron.com/pub/file). To get a much more recent version with an updated libmagic database (5.20 released in 2014 as of this writing) download and install Cygwin.

comment How to set path of Virtual PC hard disk differencing parent
I am pretty sure I would have given up before modifying the VHD files with a hex editor multiple times, reading the VHD spec, and then writing a c++ (?) application to calculate VHD checksums. If I hadn't figured out the "easy" way to do this there is no way I would have gone this far. You sir have inspired me to push further than I would have in the past, +1.
