Windows 7 shut down with custom messsage

Is it possible to shut down windows 7 with a custom message?

I found this tool:

Beyond Logic Shutdown for NT/2000/XP

But when I run it (through cmd or with a batch file), the application opens for a millisecond and then close without doing anything..

Somebody can help me?

Thanks

Yes it is possible.. as in you want to replace what ? the shutting down message ? or something else what exactly you want to achieve?

The tool in my previous post is perfect... if it works...

I want a messagebox to pop-up with a custom message, and the possibility to cancel the shutdown.

@Britton30: there is no option to cancel the action in your tutorials...

@nooruddin76: well that's the question, why is it not working here? Why is it closed after a millisecond...
