    getexitcodeprocess exit code

    Hi All,

    Maybe I'm getting confused - but - the docs say this:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...odeprocess.asp

    <quote>
    Return Values
    If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

    If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
    </quote>

    So I'm doing this:

    Code:
    if(GetExitCodeProcess(piProcessInfo.hProcess, &dwExitCode) == 0)
    			{
    				//timeout or error
    				perror("Error getting exit code");
    				res = GetLastError();
    				perror("Error getting exit code");
    			}
    
    			if(dwExitCode == 0)
    			{
    				perror("Error getting exit code");
    				res = GetLastError();
    				perror("Error getting exit code");
    			}
    perror and getlasterror all return 0 (no matter which one comes first) <scratches head> - are the docs wrong?

    Cheers, rotis23

    Sorry - was checking the dwexitcode wrongly - should be

    Code:
    if(dwExitCode > 0)
    The process of posting helps me to solve my problems myself!
