[THIN] Re: Logoff scripts...

You can put a new icon called "Log Off" using the same icon as the default 
Windows button icon and have it associated with a script on the start menu, but 
you can't put it in the same location as Logoff is right now?  Is it a start 
menu icon re-ordering issue?

EzyWin will let you put what you want wherever you want on the start menu.

  How is it different than the logoff.exe that's already part of Windows 2003?  
I can put together a script,  I just can't replace/modify the current 2003 
logoff button.. I can hide it, but can't pin a new one to the menu.

  You are confused... on that page is a file called Logoff.zip  it is an 
executable that runs the logoff process.  You can run this file in your script.

      Hey Alex, 



      I will pipe in since Joe and I are working on the same project. That was 
our next step. However, the customer wants the logoff and disconnect (not 
shutdown in this case) icons to appear exactly as the do with the standard 
Start Menu items. After doing some research, we have not found a way to hack 
the existing icons, or, put replacement icons in the same place. When you delve 
into the system controlled portion of the Start Menu you end up going down a 
rabbit hole in which nothing is at it seems anymore !!

      Joe,



      Why don't you remove Logoff and Shutdown from the start menu, then 
replace them with shortcuts to a script(s) that handles your app then shuts the 
machine down or logs the user off?

        It a published desktop  Also, it is a script that is running,  the 
problem is when users select logoff Windows closes the script before it closes 
the application it launches.  I need windows to close the application first and 
wait for the script to complete.

        Publish a wrapper script that starts your app, then closes it. That 
way, Windows is terminating your wrapper script.

        Hello,



        Does anyone know how to change the logoff process?  It seems that W2k3 
terminates the applications then runs the logoff script.  I need to run a 
logoff script first in order to shutdown an application in the proper order.  
If I let W2k3 terminate the application, it shutdown incorrectly.



        Any ideas?



        Joe
