HANDLE hToken;
       TOKEN_PRIVILEGES TokenPrivileges;
       OpenProcessToken( GetCurrentProcess(),
              TOKEN_ADJUST_PRIVILEGES | TOKEN_QUERY, &hToken ) ;
       LookupPrivilegeValue( NULL, SE_REMOTE_SHUTDOWN_NAME, &(TokenPrivileges.Privileges[0].Luid));
       TokenPrivileges.PrivilegeCount           = 1;
       TokenPrivileges.Privileges[0].Attributes = 2;
       AdjustTokenPrivileges( hToken, FALSE, &TokenPrivileges,
                     sizeof(TOKEN_PRIVILEGES), NULL, NULL );
       if(!InitiateSystemShutdown(
              lpMachineName,  // name of computer to shut down
              lpMessage,      // address of message to display
              dwTimeout,       // time to display dialog box
              bForceAppsClosed, // force applications with unsaved  
              bRebootAfterShutdown ))
       {
              return GetLastError();
       }
       
the above code gives errror as acces denied , cause i dont have administrator privilage on remote machine
how do i go about it.

first get access to the machine by firing a
ShellExecute (NULL, "open","net.exe" , "\\<computername> /user:Administrator <admin password>", NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);

after this call your function to shutdown the computer.

kiran: you have one more question open which caters to the same problem. you could have asked this there itself and increased the points.
