Use this

Declare
Private Declare Sub ExitProcess Lib "kernel32" (ByVal uExitCode As Long)

When you want to exit
ExitProcess 50& 'this returns a 50 for a 1 use
ExitProcess 1&

In you experience, does this cause a problem since this command is unsupported in vb?

<<command is unsupported in vb? >>

How do you mean unsupported ? It is a Windows API

unsupported in vb...I guess vb likes to close its own way:
