    A tiny library, with source for merging, requested by Linecutter that lets you shutdown or reboot your PC. Desktop only but .NET 1.1 and later.

    I'll start work later tonight (unless the computer keeps shutting down every time I create a bug in the program ;)).

    MyTurn 1.0 beta

    As promised, freeware, open source & liable to lock you out of the house for the night if you aren't careful!

    The source code, dlls & compiled exes are in the zip. There's even a ReadMe type file.

    Make sure that you have an admin account that this is not running in!

    I'd be interested in bugs, suggestions for improvements, posting of improved versions & feedback about which assumptions I've made about Vista (in which this probably doesn't work).

    If it all goes pear shaped the registry entries are pretty obvious in the source code.

    I've updated this a little, so have moved it to "Share your creations"

    Hello Agraham,
    I don't understand how to use ExitWindows on my computer which runs under XP.

    For example if i write

    Sub Form1_Close
    If Msgbox ("Stop ?" Titre, cMsgboxYesNo,cMsgboxQuestion) = cNo Then
    End If
    End Sub

    If i use '0' I log off.
    If I use '1' or '2' or '5'(1 +4) or '6'(2+4) nothing appends. Why?

    Could you help me.

    Best regards

    Probably your program is not running with permission to shut down the computer. It needs to have administrator privileges to do so.

    I'm sorry, but in that case I don't understand either!
