psshutdown vs shutdown.exe

Post by SibTiger » Fri Dec 17, 2004 7:23 am

So what is the big advantage to using psshutdown? I guess I see little added functionality compared to shutdown.exe. I guess I question whether it should be included in the UpdatePack. Can someone tell me how they use it, and why shutdown.exe doesn't cut it?

what's nice about psshutdown is that it allows other tasks to continue on after starting the shutdown task. Last time I checked, shutdown.exe doesn't let you do that.

I'm going to lock this thread now that a poll is going on whether or not it should remain in the pack. This discussion can be continued there if you want.
