Wake on lan from Server 2008 64 bit

I want to wake up my pc from the server.
Before I used a simple bat file with this content: mc-wol 00:1E:C9:78:9F:1C
mc.wol.exe is an exe file that I downloaded from www.matcode.com
It works from a 32 bit server but from Server 2008 64 bit it doesn't work.
Is there another software that do the same.
I have Visual studio 2008 maybe i can program it.

Thanks BillBach,
this program works on my clients PC Vista and XP but not in the Server 2008.
It starts but doesn't wake up any computer.

I tried to switch off the Windows Firewall and the Mc affe antivirus but it still doesn't work.

Two possibilities -- either Win2008 won't allow access to the NIC driver that is needed, or the firewall won't let the packet out.

You might be able to use Wireshark from a workstation to watch for the Magic Packet.  Here's what you're looking for:

If you do NOT see it coming out, and you've disabled the firewalls & such, then it may be necessary to check with Microsoft to see if they have removed the capability of directly sending packets from the more secure x64 environment.  Would be interesting to also check a VM running inside the x64 OS to see if THAT can send the packet...

Thanks BillBach I followed the link to Wiki and then to http://www.depicus.com/wake-on-lan/woli.aspx .
There I found the .NET code and I tried and it worked fine.

Thanks a lot.
