It's not a stupid question at all.  My macro starts and stops
performance counter logs, and it uses that by passing along
instructions to a GUI application (perfmon.exe).  If that won't work
from a remote shell, it's back to the drawing board for me.

Do you have any suggestions on how to do this on Win2kAS?
