i'm programming a system in .net that designed to run an execution file on a remote machine via cli command, in this case, Amazon EC2 windows instance. I've searched the AWS .net SDK and found no request of sending a shell command to the machine or something similar. Would appreciate your help on that one.

A good question, you have to remember of course that AWS gives you a virtual machine and that's it - there's no magic framework for controlling it, installing components, .. you get RDC and that's about it – Kieren Johnstone Nov 18 '11 at 15:53

You can use Remote Powershell which itself takes advantage of WinRM.
