Start and Terminate an External Application
Posted on 2005-04-15
Hi there, I'm after a way of starting and terminating an external application using Visual Basic 6. i don't need to do anything fancy like wait until the application has closed or anything like that, simply start the application and then close it. However, when I close it I'd like to terminate the application completely, e.g. like with word if you've changed the document when you click the X it asks you if you wish to save the changes, the application I'm closing works similar, it basically asks you if you're sure you wish to close it, i'd like to bypass this when closing the application from VB and just terminate it.
Any help is greatly appreciated, cheers.
