    Problems with ExitWindowsEx

    Hi.
    I am trying to shut down my comp. (or turn off power) with if but I fail. Log off does work, to bad Power off doesn't . So can anyone help me with this problem?
    Code:
    This DOES work:
    
        if ( Attempts <= 1 ){
        ExitWindowsEx(EWX_LOGOFF,0);
        } 
    
    This DOESN'T work:
    
        if ( Attempts <= 1 ){
        ExitWindowsEx(EWX_POWEROFF,0);
        }
    Off Topic: Sorry for the first post but why can't I post on a old thread?

    You did read the rules before posting didn't you? Let me help, Rule 5...
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.

    As mentioned in the other thread, you need to enable the SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege. You can do this with my EnableProcessPrivilege function:
    Code:
    EnableProcessPrivilege(SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME, TRUE);
