Does anyone know how to force windows 3.1 to remove a program from memory, or is there a way to write an MFC app to display DLL's in memory and give an option to unload a given DLL?
This is all within the 3.1 environment.
Thanks.

The quickest way is to call LoadLibrary() on the DLL to retrieve its HINSTANCE. Then call FreeLibrary() until FreeLibrary() returns FALSE. I belive in Win16, there's an API called GetModuleCount() to return the number of references on the DLL.

I forgot to add that if you want the list of DLLs, use ModuleFirst() and ModuleNext() in ToolHelp.
