Well, this is one of those simple little programs that can make life
a little easier. The purpose of this program is simply to allow you
to double-click on an icon and shutdown Windows. This I found to be
easier than going through Program Manager.

You can just simply exit Windows, or configure it to display a dialog
box asking you if you really want to exit. This is similar to what
you get from Program Manager.

BUT DON'T WORRY!.

This method of closing down Windows is the same way Program Manager
does it. So no work will be lost. For example, let's say you have
EXCEL running with a spreadsheet you just created or modified, but
haven't saved yet. EXCEL (and all running programs) will get notified
by Windows that it is closing down, so you have a chance to save your
work.


****************************************************************************
NEW FOR VERSION 1.1 :


For added flexibility, version 1.1 or WinExit can now be executed
from Program Manager. Just define WinExit in any folder with
something (ANYTHING!) on the command line. Then when you
double-click on the EXIT icon, it will shutdown Windows.

To install WinExit, just add it to the LOAD= line in your WIN.INI file.
The program is setup to only allow one instance of itself. I didn't
see a point to have two running.

WinExit's system menu has 3 new options. The first is the menu
equivilent of double-clicking the icon. At the bottom of the menu is
the ABOUT box and the EXIT DIALOG BOX option. The EXIT DIALOG BOX
option is a toggle. If this is toggled on (a checkmark will appear),
when you double-click a dialog box will appear asking you if you really
want to exit. This setting is saved in the WIN.INI file under the
keyword [WinExit].


I would like to here your opinions and suggestions on WinExit.

I am releasing this program in public domain.
