I am using MS Access and the SetParent API call. I use SetParent to make a window (it actually is an executing mpg-file that was executed by mcisendstring function) the child of MS Access MDI.
At this point everything is ok. BUT: when I close MS Access while the mpg-file is still running, then MS Access closes indeed but short after that an MS Access fatal exception error is displayed.
I suspect this to be the result of the mci-object trying to continue to play while the window already has been closed (along with MS Access being its parent).
I need to know how I can properly close the childwindow. However, after the window becomes a child of MS Access, I can't find the hwnd using FindWindow function. So I don't know how to close/destroy it. Any suggestions?
