I 've the following situation. From within a Visual Basic 6 app I call a function in a third-party DLL. This function waits for a physical event in order to terminate (eg.: touch a scanner screen), but that does not always happen.

Can I kill that execution from my VB6 app?

Tks in advance,
LR

I don't believe you can do that unless the dll provides an entry point to that functionality.
