Run a script before computer shuts down

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to run a script, before the computer shuts down ?

I would like to execute a script of mine, when shutdown is pressed, so first execute script, and then initiate shutdown, but without using any other program as a windows shutdowner.

Or another approach:

When Windows gets request to end/logg of it sends WM_QUERYENDSESSION message to all running aplications.

So you can have your application always running and waiting for this message and when it comes then do what you want.

You can catch this message by GUIRegisterMsg()

Here is link at MSDN
