Hello,
I'm writing an installation application that uses auto-extract arj files.
I'm extracting the arj file by using 'CreateProcessA' function. A Dos window is opened, the file is exctacted
and at the end of the process the Dos window does not closed.
Any idea how can I close the window ?

Many thanks
