How do I shut down the computer using VB code?

How do I shut down windows? In vb..


  • Hi,

    You can restart windows, using the following code.

    Declare the following in the decleration section of your form:

    Declare Function ExitWindows Lib "User" (ByVal RestartCode As Long, ByVal DosReturnCode As Integer) As Integer

    Then: i = ExitWindows(66, 0)

    I hope this helps, have a great day!
