Okay this is the situation: i need to execute some actions when windows 98 is shutting down.

Now the last autoit beta provide me with the mean to intercept a system shutdown that will close my script with onautoitexit.

But i whant to insure that my commands are carried out and not closed by the system.

So how can i use autoit to abort a windows 98 system shutdown in order to carry a set of actions?

TRY

$msg="shutdown -a"

Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $msg, "", @SW_HIDE)

somebody didn't read the windows 98 bit... shutdown.exe is only available on windows xp

This might only be for networked machines, and maybe newer versions of windows...

Dllcall("advapi32.dll","int","AbortSystemShutdownA","str","\\Computername")

This should abort any non-forced shutdown you throw at it:

$WM_QUERYENDSESSION = 0x0011
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_QUERYENDSESSION, "Cancel_Shutdown")

GUICreate("PreventShutdownGUI")
GUISetSTate(@SW_HIDE)

While 1 
    sleep(10)
WEnd

Func Cancel_Shutdown($hWndGUI, $MsgID, $WParam, $LParam)
    Return False
EndFunc

Note: I haven't tested it on windows 98. Pretty sure it should still work. Works on win2k and XP.

This dosen't appear to be working on windows 98 but thanks for trying

$WM_QUERYENDSESSION = 0x0011
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_QUERYENDSESSION, "Cancel_Shutdown")

GUICreate("PreventShutdownGUI")
GUISetSTate(@SW_HIDE)

While 1
    sleep(10)
WEnd

Func Cancel_Shutdown($hWndGUI, $MsgID, $WParam, $LParam)
    Return False
EndFunc

This however is working perfectly. It's not very flexible however. It's difficult to insert code because Cancel_Shutdown mustreturn false and i doubt i can use it's param to detect it it's ben run.

The only way i see of using this is by adding a run() to the function Cancel_Shutdown.

Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)

$WM_QUERYENDSESSION = 0x0011
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_QUERYENDSESSION, "Cancel_Shutdown")

GUICreate("PreventShutdownGUI")
GUISetSTate(@SW_HIDE)

While 1
    if ProcessExists("killpgm.exe") then
    Exit
    endif
    sleep(10)
WEnd

Func Cancel_Shutdown($hWndGUI, $MsgID, $WParam, $LParam)
    run(@ScriptDir & "\killpgm.exe")
    Return False
EndFunc

You can do stuff like this:

Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)

$WM_QUERYENDSESSION = 0x0011
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_QUERYENDSESSION, "Cancel_Shutdown")
GUICreate("PreventShutdownGUI")
GUISetSTate(@SW_HIDE)
Global $b_ShutdownInitiated = False


While 1
    If $b_ShutdownInitiated = True then
        ;Do stuff here
        ;do some more stuff here
        ;DoTheShutDownStuff();maybe do some more stuff here ;)
        ;Shutdown();Maybe you want to shutdown the computer when done
        Exit;otherwise, you just exit this script
    EndIf
    sleep(10)
WEnd

Func Cancel_Shutdown($hWndGUI, $MsgID, $WParam, $LParam)
;~     run(@ScriptDir & "\killpgm.exe")
    $b_ShutdownInitiated = True
    Return False
EndFunc

This code works great on Windows XP but doesn't seem to work on Vista machines. Anyone have any idea how I can get something similar to work on Vista?

Hello,
Did you find a solution for Windows Seven 64 bits, to intercept the shutdown ?

You do realize that this post hasn't had a response in it in over 7 years right?

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
