Netdom.exe for Windows 7 32-bit

That was a total waste of hours! I have a customer running a 2008 R2 Server with a mix of XP and Windows 7 32-bit computers. I need to remotely rename the computers on the domain. I found netdom.exe for XP, put it in the netlogon folder, ran it remotely and it worked like a champ.

   After a lot of pain and frustration I managed to get netdom.exe on my 32-bit Windows 7 computer but as soon as I copy it out of the c:\windows\system32 folder it no longer runs I am assuming because of the language file.

   I need to change the names remotely (running sysinternals psexec) but it doesn't look like netdom.exe for WIndows 7 32-bit is going to work. Has anyone accomplished this?

Yes..... as mentioned above I have netdom.exe on my Windows 7 computer. Also mentioned was the fact that I cannot simply copy it to another Windows 7 computer. It will not run.

The question has been abandon and the one response I did get did nothing more then echo what I had already tried. I do not feel that justifies awardin points.
