Display a form with I Agree or Disagree during logon process

Hi

Would anyone out there know of a way to log a user of when they click a command button. I have a form that is displayed during the sychronous log on stage. That is as soon as the user logs into windows, the form is pushed down from a server and prevents the user from initiating anything-eg ending windows or starting browsing etc.

However, I am trying to use the ExitWindowsEx API to log the user of if they select the I Disagree button. For some reason, this does not work. I have searched the MSDN library and apparently this may not work because the user is not an interactive user.

Attached is the code that I am using.

Private Sub cmdDisagree_Click()

   Dim uFlags As Long
   
   uFlags = EWX_LOGOFF
   Call TerminateAction(uFlags)
   
End Sub

Private Function TerminateAction(uTask As Long)
   
    Dim success As Long

    'assume success
    success = True
 
    'if running under NT or better,
    'the shutdown privledges need to
    'be adjusted to allow the ExitWindowsEx
    'call. If the adjust call fails on a NT+
    'system, success holds False, preventing shutdown.
    If IsWinNTPlus Then
        success = EnableShutdownPrivledges()
    End If

    If success Then Call ExitWindowsEx(uTask, 0&)
   
End Function

Any help would be appreciated.

cheers

Paddy
