There was a winexe in the Debian/Ubuntu package wmi-client. It isn't
available in the official repositories any longer, see

"The old wmi-client package that used to be in debian was pulled due to
 the forked/branched nature of the source code as well as the idea that
 something better could be implemented with the upcoming Samba4 release."

Btw, if I try to connect with winexe towards the laptop of my wife (Win7
Home), I get an error. Does it need Win 7 Pro on the remote side? Samba?
Special admin rights?

Best regards, Michael.
