I have a TLauncher component (made according to R.Konopka) which is a good interface to ShellExecute and ShellExecuteEx functions. If you'd like, I will send its source to you. Give me your E-mail address and I'll send it to you.

To find the handle for word window and minimize it which is what closewindow does use this code

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
Hwd: HWND;
begin
  Hwd := FindWindow('OpusApp', nil);
   CloseWindow(Hwd);
end;

or if wish to close the app down use this code

PostMessage(FindWindow('OpusApp', nil), WM_QUIT, 0, 0);

You can use the FindWindow API to get the handle of an app as first example
