That may not work if you don't have the proper priviledges to issue the Reboot command.

Take a look at the code here:

note to future viewers.

The code i used to reboot was:

Shell ("C:\Windows\System32\Shutdown -r")

Works great

Happy codeing

Just be aware that you are using an external EXE called "shutdown" that may not be present on all systems.

It can be moved or deleted easily.    =)
