I've found numerous posts here and elsewhere that discuss programatically installing file and printer sharing for MS networks, however, I keep seeing references to a utility "snetcfg.exe" that no longer seems to be available.  Does anyone know where to find this?  We need to not only "enable" File and Printer Sharing, but we also have computers where it is simply not installed.  We have several hundred computers to get this configured on, and doing it with some automation would obviously be ideal.

To enable if already configured, you can follow these directions:

snetcfg.exe is part of the Windows 2003 DDK/WDK.  You can find the ISO which should contain that file here:
