Close Application Requestion

Hi,

I am developing an application that should be close for another one. I mean, I have my APP1.exe running (could exist only one APP1.exe or a several running at the same time) that must be closed by a command button in APP2.exe.

How can I do that considering the following constraint condition?
1) I do not want to use files
2) I do not want to use queue message
3) I do not want to use any networking?

I tought to use some SendMessage to all APP1.exe running, but how to do that? Any other idea will be welcome as well.

Thanks,

Hi,

You can do it like this

        Dim objProcess() As Process = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName("App1")

        For Each p As Process In objProcess
            p.Kill()
        Next

Using Process.Kill() will forcefully close instances of App1 (which might be okay), or you can use Process.CloseMainWindow() - which has the same effect as if the user had closed the main window of each App1, which means App1 would have a chance to shutdown gracefully.
