    Question Kill Another Program

    Hi,

    My program needs the ability to check if a particular (external)application is running, and if so kill it.

    Any Idea's on how this could be done?

    Thanks

    Magic

    The easiest: if the application has a window, find it (using FindWindow) and send it a WM_CLOSE message.
