Windows 7: Devcon disable command

Devcon disable command

I must use the devcon disable command across a network. I am an administrator and I must use the devcon command to disable a device on a remote computer on the network.

According to the help, the disable command only works on the local machine.

I was wondering if there is some sort of walk-around to this. If I totally must use a devcon disable command across a network, what would be the best way to do this?

I REALLY don't want to code this up myself. I prefer to use devcon. Plz help.

I got an idea. Will creating a batch file remotely and executing the dev command within the batch file work on the remote computer?

Let me know. Also let me know if there are other alternatives.

Hi, I recently disabled several hardware items on my laptop (CDROM, PCMCIA, etc.) to save the battery life. My question is, is there a way to setup a "command" to enable and disable these hardware without going to the Control Panel, etc.? Many thanks in advance. Regards,
