I use VB4 32bit apps with Windows 95.
From with-in my VB4 application, i need to know when another application (NetScape) has been closed.

Capture the variable which contains the reference to the shell function (e.g : Retval=shell(....), Retval is the referenced variavle), and use it with the Activate function, ti activate the application window. if the application is still alive then everything is OK. But if the application is not running any more, this operation will make an error. Trap this error and you will now that your application is closed.

Hi CIMIR
            Good Idea but......
Thank for the answer, I have tried it with a delay, but each time i do AppActivate this interupts the application. The application that i wish to monitor is NetScape so each time an Activate occures it interupts what i'm doing with-in Netscape.
