    Hello,

    it would be very useful to to able to launch & close other applications from B4PPC, so that we could develop new schedulers, tasklists, appli-swap, ....

    Thank you

    DBO33 ;)

    You can already do that using the Shell command (at least the opening of other programs, see the help file for more info). It really helps in writing nice programs ! :)

    Good luck with the programming !

    Thank you for answer.
    SHELL is OK for opening applis but how to close them ?
    It would be great to get the process for each application running also...

    I just saw that you can do this if you install Mortscript (a freeware program from http://www.sto-helit.de/) and run it with the shell command of Basic4ppc.

    all the best Björn

    Hi BjornF

    thanks for your answer.
    Good solution !!!!!!! :sign0098:
    I will try it

    But for more complex programs, it would be also usefull to manage directly the process numbers in Windows

    Thanks
