I'm not sure what your definition is of "external tools". Psexec is part of the Sysinternals suite of tools that is now owned by Microsoft. These tools are simply an executable that you download (for free) and use on your Windows system. My personal view is to consider the Sysinternals tools as "native" tools that just are not shipped with the OS.

For your desired task of using one Windows system to remotely run a command on another Windows system, I personally agree with BrowserUk that psexec will be the easiest method available.
