I have included the following code on several terminal servers to log a user off when closing the application.
Shell "logoff.exe", vbNormalFocus

I now have a server where this code gives the error "Invalid procedure call".
I can replace the code to open Notepad like this:
Shell "Notepad.exe", vbNormalFocus
and that works fine to open the application.  I have tried including the full path to logoff.exe and dropping it in a batch file and running it from there. Still no luck.
Any suggestions?

This is VBA code inside a MS Access 2010-2019 application
