Closing a process

Hello experts,

I have started a process using the following code;

Public pro As New System.Diagnostics.Process()
Public proMRDCL As Process

  Sub RunShellCommand()
        Try
            Pro.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden
            pro.StartInfo.FileName = strMYPATH & "QBExports\QBmrdclEX.stp"
            proMRDCL = System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(pro.StartInfo)
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(2000)
            System.Windows.Forms.SendKeys.Send("{ENTER}")
        Catch
        End Try
    End Sub

My question is how do i stop the process. I have tried using proMRDCL.Close() but it doesnt work.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Tom

Have you tried:

proMRDCL.Kill()
proMRDCL = Nothing
