Hi, I have written a simple exe that the user calls from the command line with various parameters. I can display messages if things go wrong, but some customers want error codes returned so that they can integrate it into their applications. But I am unsure how to do this. This is a windows application written in Delphi 7. I want to return a 0 or 1 etc.

Many thanks.
Gary

Just set ExitCode before you quit/terminate your application
e.g.
ExitCode := 1;
