Dear all,

Is there a way to check Windows Processes and when a particular program is ready and closed a command, batch file etc is triggered to switch off the computer.

I am using ViewClient 4.5 (VMware) and this allows you to logon to the virtual desktop using a single sign on. Now what I want is that when a users press logoff on the virtual desktop the process automatically tops and this switch off the physical pc.

So, if I understand this right, when you take a logoff from the virtual you want the physical host to shut down.

Let's put it this way:

I assume that your user account and password are the same on both virtual and physical PC. I also assume that you have admin permissions on both computers with that account.

Create a batch file on the virtual:

shutdown /s /m \\physicalpcname /t 30
logoff

Open in new window


Run the batch file. It will initiate shutdown of the physical pc in 30 seconds after running and it will log you off from the virtual pc.
