I'm attempting to use Listing 7.9 but just on my local machine. When I use Win32Shutdown(5) I get
Exception calling "Win32Shutdown" : "Privilege not held. "
There are many hits for this on Google but they are all quite old. The problem seems to have been known about in 2005. Does anyone know more recent information on how to shutdown the computer that a script is running on? Does the script in Listing 7.9 only work for remote computers?
Win 7, .Net 4
