Hi Steve,
But what happens if you need to see the error messages that may pop up from
other apps like Lotus Domonio server?
Because everything is getting shut down non gracefully those messages may
not be in the log of the particular app.
PC Anywhere does not respond to the windows shutdown message, VNC should do
the same.
