You really can't. The only way to do so is to use CreateProcess instead. CreateProcess returns a process by which you can use WaitForSingleObject() on the handle to know when the process has terminated.

// strCmdLine is command line

STARTUPINFO StartupInfo;
PROCESS_INFORMATION ProcessInformation;

::ZeroMemory(&StartupInfo, sizeof(StartupInfo));
StartupInfo.cb = sizeof(StartupInfo);

::ZeroMemory(&ProcessInformation, sizeof(ProcessInformation));

            if(::CreateProcess( NULL,
                          (LPTSTR)(LPCTSTR)strCmdLine,
                          NULL,
                          NULL,
                          TRUE,
                          CREATE_DEFAULT_ERROR_MODE,
                          NULL,
                          NULL,
                          &StartupInfo,
                          &ProcessInformation
                        )
              )
{
::WaitForSingleObject(ProcessInformation.hProcess, INFINITE);
// WaitForSingleObject exits when process terminates
::CloseHandle(ProcessInformation.hProcess);
::CloseHandle(ProcessInformation.hThread);
}
