I am running a Windows 7 PC and a Windows 7 Laptop both connected to a router forming a LAN. So, I want to remotely shutdown the laptop from the PC. I found out I could do this in command prompt by entering:
shutdown -i or
shutdown/i. I then clicked "add" in the GUI that appeared and typed in the IP address of the laptop.
However, it did not work but gave me this error:
The entered computer name is not valid or remote shutdown is not supported on the target computer. Check the name and then tryp again or contact your system administrator.<53>
I enabled and started the Remote Registry on both computers and it still did not work. I am an admin user on both computers are am logged into the desktop with an admin account. Any ideas?
