Your own app or another app?

If the former:
  // To create
  D3D8 := Direct3DCreate9(D3D_SDK_VERSION);

  // To destroy
  D3D8 := nil;

Thanks, sorry i didn't make it clear.

I mean from my own application. Co'z I will be write an Internet Cafe software that will take control of Client PC, if user's time is up then Server has to send some string commands to Client program (runnning on Client PC) and tell client program to terminate any running DirectX games safely.

Oh, you want to tell *other* DX apps to close. Can you just send a WM_QUIT to the window?

I  know there is a trick that can "force" DirectX app to terminate by calling some function of DirectX Helper. but i forgot in what website... :(
