I set an external exe running with WinExec. I can periodicaly cycle through the windows (say using FindWindow) to see if it' still open. But, is there a better way to know when that program terminates?

Thanks,

Tom.

Is there a reason why you just don't wait until that external program is executed?

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. The program in question creates a file that I need to process once the external program is finished running (depending on the user this could take form a few seconds to many minutes). Does that answer your question?

Sorry, for my misleading question. I wanted to know if you wanted to wait with your program until the other program was finished. Or that you wanted to continue with your program and not wait until that exe program is finished. I see in your comment that you need to wait, because you need a file. Yes then there is a better way to do it. You can program it yourself are you can use a freeware component (better, it's easier and it's already made). If you want it. I can send it to you or I can give you the place where you can find it. Or if you really need to write it yourself i can give it too. Just give a comment.

ZifNab, that sounds cool, it would probably be easier for both od us if you incluse the URL for the freeware component. Sounds great, thanks a lot. Tom.

Well,
here they come. I also use this component and I find it the best. It also has good documentation.
