Why don't use try...except or try...finally to capture the exception?

This can't be done. If you were talking about a Windows program then you could use

CreateProcess, WaitForInputIdle, WaitForSingleObject followed by
GetExitCodeProcess(ProcessInfo.hProcess,nExitCode) ;

The problem is that GetExitCodeProcess only works with Windows applications.
