    "File System Listening" (?)

    Hello.
    Do you know if it it's possible for a app to know whether a specific program's fopen has failed (under windows)? Example of what I'm looking for would be:
    "App A attempts to open file Y (which doesn't exist)" -> "fopen fails" -> "Something triggers an event on App B"
    Thank you for your time.

    You will have to manually notify App B in some way. I'd ask in the Windows forum.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
