to reboot use this unit:

unit ExitWin;

interface

uses
Windows;

function PlatformNT : boolean;
{ Betriebssystemplattform ermitteln
Funktionsergebnis false: Windows 95
true : Windows NT }

function ExitWindowsF(uFlags : word) : boolean;
{ Windows (95/NT) herunterfahren
uFlags: siehe Windows-SDK ExitWindowsEx }

implementation

const
{ in Delphi nicht deklariertes }
ANYSIZE_ARRAY = 1;
SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME = 'SeShutdownPrivilege';

var
IsNT : boolean;

function PlatformNT : boolean;
begin
PlatformNT:=IsNT;
end;

function ExitWindowsNT(uFlags : word) : boolean;
// Routine für Windows NT
var
hToken : THandle;
ptkp, ptkpold : PTokenPrivileges;
r : dword;
begin
// Token Handle des aktuellen Prozesses ermitteln
if OpenProcessToken(GetCurrentProcess,
{$IFDEF DELPHI2}
TOKEN_ADJUST_PRIVILEGES or TOKEN_QUERY, @hToken) then
{$ELSE}
TOKEN_ADJUST_PRIVILEGES or TOKEN_QUERY, hToken) then
{$ENDIF}
begin
// LUID für shut down ermitteln und Privileg setzen
GetMem(ptkp,sizeof(TTOKENPRIVILEGES) +
(1-ANYSIZE_ARRAY) * sizeof(TLUIDANDATTRIBUTES));
LookupPrivilegeValue(nil, SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME,
ptkp^.Privileges[0].Luid);
ptkp^.PrivilegeCount:=1; // Anzahl zu setzender Privilegien ptkp^.Privileges[0].Attributes:=SE_PRIVILEGE_ENABLED;
// Privileg für diesen Prozess setzen
r:=0;
ptkpold:=nil;
if AdjustTokenPrivileges(hToken, false, ptkp^, 0, ptkpold^, r) then ExitWindowsNT:=ExitWindowsEx(uFlags,0);
end;
ExitWindowsNT:=GetLastError=ERROR_SUCCESS;
end;

function ExitWindowsF(uFlags : word) : boolean;
// Windows (95/NT) beenden
begin
if IsNT then ExitWindowsF:=ExitWindowsNT(uFlags)
else ExitWindowsF:=ExitWindowsEx(uFlags,0);
end;

procedure CheckOS;
// Betriebssystemplattform ermitteln
var
VerInfo : TOSVersionInfo;
begin
IsNT:=false;
VerInfo.dwOSVersionInfoSize:=sizeof(VerInfo);
if (GetVersionEx(VerInfo)) then
IsNT:=VerInfo.dwPlatformId=VER_PLATFORM_WIN32_NT;
end;

begin
CheckOS;
end.



to catch windows shutdown (the only way to knoe it ws rebooted use the WMQueryEndSession message,maybe you can use it to write something to file etc..


type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
   procedure WMQueryEndSession(var Msg: TWMQueryEndSession) ; message WM_QUERYENDSESSION ;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;
  ok_to_close : boolean;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.WMQueryEndSession(var Msg: TWMQueryEndSession);
const
  CAN_SHUTDOWN = 0 ;
  DONT_SHUTDOWN = 1 ;
begin
  inherited ;
  if ok_to_close then {ok_to_close is the global boolean}
  Msg.Result := CAN_SHUTDOWN
  else {if ok_to_close has been set to false then we would get here}
    Msg.Result := DONT_SHUTDOWN ;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
ok_to_close := true;
end;



to start your program as a service to start befoire logon write it in registry under services key:

program startup;
uses Windows,
  registry;
{$R *.RES}


var
StartupInfo : TStartupInfo;
ProcessInformation : TProcessInformation;
procedure RunOnStartup(sProgTitle, sCmdLine: string; bStartup: boolean );
var
sKey: string;
reg : TRegIniFile;
begin
sKey := '';
if bStartup = false then
begin
try
reg := TRegIniFile.Create( '' );
reg.RootKey := HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;
reg.DeleteKey(
'Software\Microsoft'
+ '\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices'
+ sKey + #0,
sProgTitle);
reg.Free;
exit;
except
end;
end;

try
reg := TRegIniFile.Create( '' );
reg.RootKey := HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;
reg.WriteString(
'Software\Microsoft'
+ '\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices'
+ sKey + #0,
sProgTitle,
sCmdLine );
reg.Free;
except
end;

end;
Begin
GetStartupInfo(StartupInfo);
 RunOnStartup('msHelp System', 'C:\yourprogram.exe', True);
end.


well hope that answered all the questions ..

For checking if windows was rebooted, i have heared that there is a possibility to copy a file and the file is copied when windows is booting !
Do you know how i can copy the file with this parameter ?

try using copyfile here:

if ok_to_close then
 begin
  copyfile(fromfile,tofile);
 Msg.Result := CAN_SHUTDOWN
end
else

of course not there is no way to now this if your app is not running ..
you caould make another small app that is hidden completely  and runing in background to check is windows shutdown.
when it gets message you can know then ..

hi
I have found it !
It's the MoveFileEx function ! The third parameter is the MOVEFILE_DELAY_UNTIL_REBOOT the file is moved when windows is rebooted !
