Login into Windows 2000 from service.

I need to login into windows 2000 from NT Service,
I created service which is listening on network for some command (windows is in logoff state), when command is received the service have to login user, so that logged in user can use deskop, IE, Word and so on ?

Is that posible with LogonUser Api call ?

Techincally, it is possible by using the GINA API - see http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/security/Security/winlogon_and_gina_start_page.asp ("Winlogon and GINA") and the GINA sample that ships with the PSDK. Just calling "LogonUser()" isn't enough by far...

Well, I _did_ mention a sample, but a 'delete' is OK for me...

The examples were posted above in the links provided, and clearly you chose a "C" in error, so I corrected this for you.  If you have questions in this regard, let me know.
