Hello,

In a program I am writing I have to kill another program if it is running.
The code is:

If dzhw1.GetWindowHandle("Program2", "Program2" ) > 0 Then
If Msgbox ("Now Kill Program2 ?","Routes",cMsgBoxYesNo, cMsgBoxQuestion)= cYes Then
dzhw1.KillProcess("Program2")
Return true
Else
Return false
End If
Else
Return true
End If

This code works wel - the test works correct and the killing is done if applicable -, however, after the kill process the Close Button (X) of my program does not work anymore (disabled?).

Anybody idea what is going wrong?

Some more information:

In fact the whole title bar is locked. The program itself is still functioning; i.e. react on user actions. The only possibility to close the program or to do anything else is a soft reset.

Hello Cableguy,

I don't know exactly what you mean; the application, killing the other one, continues to work. Only the 'environment' is frozen. I cannot stop the application, nor start another one on the PDA.

Trying to find out more details, I just made a small test program on my desktop; with similar results. Ctrl/Alt/Del was necesssary to get my desktop again in a normal state.

The program just has one form with one button and the following code :

Sub App_Start
Form1.Show
d1.New1
End Sub


Sub Button1_Click
d1.KillProcess("Explorer")
End Sub

The fact that this behaviour on the deskltop occurred once and that I cannot recreate it (on the desk top) , makes things more difficult.

Hi Dimitris,

Using Spy I found that the program I want to kill is not listed when Find Apps is done. It is a navigator program, which is in the minimized state. Are there specific program types in Windows, which are invisible for Spy or is that because it is minimized? Is that the reason of the strange behaviour of Mobile Windows after a Kill?

Dimitris,

More information. The program to kill is listed under Processses. When I kill the process using Spy, I get the same situation as when I kill that program with my own program: the PDA is frozen, apart from the Spy program. Only a soft reset make things running again.
