remote shutdown

I have now spent hours looking for sample code to write a small application to remotely shut down computers from one machine.
Unfortunately I have not been successfull as all the sample code so far has not been working when I upgraded it into visual studio 2005.
Could anybody give me a sample code or point me in the right direction to find one.
All the PC's are XP Pro machines and I have don't mind I use api or wmi. Whatever is simpliest method.

I have a vbscript which can do that. Maybe I could just call a vbscript from my vb application. Mind you would need to know how to do that.

thanks

try this code and tell me :)

        Dim RemotePC As String = "192.168.0.2" 'Name or IP of remote machine
        Dim p As New Process
        Dim pi As New ProcessStartInfo("Shutdown.exe", "-s  -m \\" & RemotePC & " " & "-t 00 -f")
        pi.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden
        p.Start(pi)


but you have to be authorized on the remote machine :)
