Updated version of the Configuration Manager shutdown utility

Based on feedback we have updated our Shutdown utility described in this post to include a company log. To display the logo, create a jpg, png or bmp files in the same folder as the utility and name it shutdowntool.jpg/png/bmp – simple Smiley

    I thought my .net framework was pretty standardised across the network – i’ll double check, but i can’t think of anything else to cause this?

    Cheers,

    Great Tool, Once minor cosmetic issue: If you are using the shutdowntool.jpg in combination with a long /d: “String” the logo will over lap and hide some of the text.

  3. Nick Cresswell says:

    Also, what size does the image file need to be to prevent scaling? im guessing 50×50 pixels is the exact size?

    • Claus Codam Claus Codam says:

      Hello Nick,
      The exact size of the picture control is 120×50 pixels.
      The picture will be scaled down, in the original aspect ratio, to match either size.
