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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Its MS VC++ 5.0 OR MS VC++ 6.0. I would like to know ways to do in for Win95 and Win98.

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...

NOPE. The documentation states that the function is for WinNT ONLY.

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.
