Under Win 3.1, is 3rd party app running?

Using VB3.0 under Windows 3.1, I need to be able to check if a 3rd party application is running and either shut it down or send a message to the user that my app can't continue until the 3rd party app has been shut down.

This must be simple, but I've been banging my head against a wall trying to find the answer.

Thanks,

Rob.

I would use the getWindow and FindWindow API call as a boolean.
If true, then promp a message box.

Or once window found, use app.activate window name and sendkeys
(Alt - F4) will close the app.

I don't see any documentation in VB3.0 for FindWindow or GetWindow.  Are you sure this is available in this version ov VB?   If so, can you give me an example on how to code it.

Thanks.
