Forced Shutdown of Windows NT/2K Systems

If VNC was written in Pascal I would fix it myself, but alas I am no C/C++
guru.
I think it would just require tweaking the service code in the win32 VNC
server, but I don't know for sure.
Win32 services respond to a shutdown message and this can be ignored and
the service can ignore it until it is the last service running, then accept
the shutdown message.

Any C/C++ developers can kick in here :-)

This is exactly the reasoning behind the argument that VNC should include
certain extra functionality on Windows platforms.

The issue is not a problem with VNC; it's a problem with the underlying OS
if I understand it correctly.  For corporate use, however, the point is not
"who is at fault?" but "how do we fix it quickly?" and that comes down to
switching to a product such as pcAnywhere all too often.
