Creating an exe to be executed on log off


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to find out a way of executing an autoIT exe file on log off, and was wondering if I could get some advice.

Basically I'm going to apply the autoIT exe in group policy (log off scripts)...and the autoIT script will simply execute a program.


shellexecute (URI of program)

The only problem is this doesn't seem to work.Can anyone help me.

During log-off, all processes owned by the user logging off are sent termination messages, including your batch file. You can register the shutdown event (WM_QUERYENDSESSION), but the ability to block the shutdown process until yours completes was patched out of Vista and above, I think.
