to enable remote wds control place the fallowing script in a batchfile and run batchfile.bat wdsservername

copy \\%1\c$\windows\system32\WdsMgmt.msc c:\windows\system32\WdsMgmt.msc
copy \\%1\c$\windows\system32\en-US\WdsMgmt.msc c:\windows\system32\en-US\WdsMgmt.msc
copy \\%1\c$\windows\system32\wdsmgmt.dll c:\windows\system32\wdsmgmt.dll

regsvr32 WdsMgmt.dll
