There is no built-in way, that is there is no API procedure or established means to do this.  However,  you can try to use keybd_event() to "fake" the control-alt-delete sequence.   I believe that will work.  Let me know if you have questions.

The OS and C+++ version don't matter.  (as long as the OS is a windows OS).  use keybd_event().  You will need to use it 6 times.  Once the indicate contorl is down, then to indicate alt is down, then to indicate that delete is down, then to indicate delete is up etc...

Test it well before accepting, since it was definitely a guess on my part.  (I never tried it that is for sure.)  If possible, I would test on NT, 95, and 98.  One each test that it still works when programs other than the desktop have the focus.
