Open UI with VBScript

I am tasked with opening a modal UI (a UI which must have a user click a selection to continue) which is not viewable by the user at the console. This is for testing a piece of software to see how it responds to a spawned UI which cannot continue.
It was suggested I use the Shutdown command, but I am unsure how to call it from within VBScript.

Thanks for your help!

shutdown command of windows ?

http://www.burzurq.com/forum/shutdown_icon.html

If thats the case then this should suffice in vbscript :

Set WshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

WshShell.Exec "C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE shell32,SHExitWindowsEx 1"

If that does not work then use the .Run command of WshShell ie

WshShell.Run "C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE shell32,SHExitWindowsEx 1"

obviously you have to make sure the path to RUNDLL32.EXE is in the right path otherwise the above wont work.

Thanks
