When I try to close my app by running

void CMainFrame::QuitApp()
{
     SendMessage (WM_COMMAND, ID_APP_EXIT);
}

I get an APP Error type the memory could not be read at location 0x0000a0.

Can anybody help me get rid of this error. Should I send another message or what???

Thanks for your help.

Try SendMessage(WM_CLOSE)

Good Luck,

One sure-fire way of causing this error is to send a message to a window that is already gone.  Are you SURE that this window is still open when this function gets called?

The same SendMessage command worked fine for me.
By the way what is "QuitApp()", Is it a user function or windows handler?

Also, u can change the code as follows to get the required effect.
void CMainFrame::QuitApp()
 {
PostQuitMessage(0)
 }

This is really a clean way of achieving it

void CMainFrame::QuitApp()
{
    PostQuitMessage(0)
}
