    you want to react to the exit of a specific program?

    get the process handle and loop asking for its exitcode.
    i once wrote this code:


    Code:
    while( TRUE )
    {
    	GetExitCodeProcess( hProcess, &dwExitCode );
    	if( dwExitCode != STILL_ACTIVE )
    	{
    		...
    	}
    	Sleep( ... );
    }
    don't forget to break out the loop... :-)
    i hope that answered your question...
