in reply to Disconnect users

Hrm.   I could be wrong here</CharlesBarkley>, but looks to me like Bamy787 is asking about logging off remote users, while ExitWindows() appears to be about closing the server console as if by typing CTRL+ALT+DEL.

You can use Win32AdminMisc to *set* account expiration, but that also doesn't seem to be the real question.
UserSetMiscAttributes( $Domain, $User, USER_ACCT_EXPIRES, $Expiration_In_Secs_Since_1970-01-01_00:00:00 );

Just a guess, but looks like the real question is partially addressed by this MS Knowledge Base article, and that the solution includes configuring periodic logouts (eg; nightly) using UserSetMiscAttributes( $Domain, $User, USER_LOGON_HOURS $num );   At the very worst, bouncing the server (after setting necessary account params) would force new logins with desired params now activated.

UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE and UF_LOCKOUT might also come into play, and all of the above are documented here.   Dave Roth, author of the Win32AdminMisc module, has also written two books you might find useful: Win32 Perl Scripting and Win32 Perl Programming.

[Corion]: If all else fails, Spreadsheet::XLSX should be "installable" by manually copying the files, provided that the prerequisites are met
[thezip]: It fails in the "formatted 2-digit numeric" tests
[thezip]: Okay Corion, that's what I wanted to hear. Thanks!
[Corion]: Oh, a test failure... Just force-install it then? --force and potentially --notest to skip the tests alltogether ?
[ambrus]: thezip: is Activestate Perl usable for your scenario instead?
[MidLifeXis]: Yeah, --notest is good, not sure I would do --force.
[thezip]: It fails 2/10 tests in that group. What are the ramifications if I force it? What should I look for for?
[thezip]: I've migrated from ActiveState to Strawberry. No going back...
[thezip]: I'll try the --notest arg first when I get back from meetings (after lunch).
[thezip]: Thanks guys for your comments! :-)
