VNC Server shuts down too early

Hi there,

I run WinVNC-3.3.3r9 on many W2K_Servers as service. Problem is if I
remotely initiate a shutdown or reboot, the VNC is one of the very first
processes to be stopped. If after that any of the running applications or
services cannot close properly, i.e. user interaction is required, I have to
go to the machine to press OK.

I know there is no 100% solution to this, the VNC Service has to stop at
some time and there can always be errors after that. But e.g. ControlIT
stops very much later, so if there is let's say an open notepad.exe which
asks at shutdown to save or cancel the document, with ControlIT you can say
save, with VNC you're already disconnected.

Any ideas how to solve this? Is there a way to tell NT/W2K to kill VNC
later? At the very last? :)
