I use a call of
shutdown.exe to reboot machines having different versions of Windows installed.
For Windows XP the command is:
shutdown.exe -r -f -t 01
For other versions of Windows I use:
shutdown.exe /L /R /C /Y /T:1
Now it seems, that the second command won't work on Windows XP. Does anybody know which versions of Windows support slashes and which dashes?
This is not an issue of wrong parameters. Here is a printout from an affected machine (German installation of Windows XP):
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp. C:\shutdown.exe /L /R /C /Y /T:1 Syntax: shutdown.exe [-l | -s | -r | -a] [-f] [-m \\Computer] [-t xx] [-c "Kommentar"] [-d up:xx:yy] ....
