    Window Programming/Networking.

    Hi, Wrote a simple client/server in DOS.

    Its ment to be really simple.

    Anyways I wrote the client in C++ to display in DOS


    this works fine. It connects and recvs the only packet its sent and everything.
    Code:
    // Standard Includes
    #include <iostream>
    #include "SocketObject.h"
    using namespace std;
    
    struct PacketHandeler
    {
     int stop;
     SocketObject	ClientSocketObject;	
    };
    int toMilli(SYSTEMTIME st);
    void thrReceiveThread(PacketHandeler *tPacketRecv);
    void PacketDisplay(char *buf,int iBytesSent);
    void StartMacro(char *buf);
    //
    // ----> Main Program Function (REQUIRED)
    //
    int main( )
    {
    	SocketObject	ClientSocketObject;	
    	int				iPort = 6223;		// HTTP Port
    	char			szSendBuffer[256];
    	int				iBytesSent;
    
    	int				iBytesReceived;
    	
    	cout << "<-- ATTEMPTING CONNECTION -->" << endl;
    
    	// Attempt to connect
    	if ( ClientSocketObject.Connect( "127.0.0.1", iPort)  ) {
    		cout << "<-- SOCKET CONNECTED -->" << endl;
    		PacketHandeler PacketRecv;
    
    		PacketRecv.ClientSocketObject = ClientSocketObject;
    		PacketRecv.stop = 1;
    		// Load the request buffer
    		/*sprintf(szSendBuffer,"GET / HTTP/1.0\n\n");
    		// Send the request
    		iBytesSent = ClientSocketObject.Send(szSendBuffer,256,0);
    		cout << "<-- SENT " << iBytesSent << " BYTES -->" << endl;*/
    		
    		// Receive the response
    
    		
    			CreateThread(
    					NULL,  
    					NULL,                        
    					(LPTHREAD_START_ROUTINE ) &thrReceiveThread,     
    					&PacketRecv,          
    					NULL,									
    					NULL
    					);
    		// Output what was received
    			system("pause");
    			while(true)
    			{
    				Sleep(5000);
    			}
    
    	}		
    	else {
    		cout << "**ERROR** Could Not Connect" << endl;
    	}
    
    	system("pause");
    	WSACleanup();
    
    	return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    }
    void thrReceiveThread(PacketHandeler *tPacketRecv)
    {
    int				iBytesReceived;
    char			szRecvBuffer[32768];
    
    while(tPacketRecv->stop){
    iBytesReceived = tPacketRecv->ClientSocketObject.Recv(szRecvBuffer,32768,0);
    PacketDisplay(szRecvBuffer,iBytesReceived);  //I took out this function since it was so big
    StartMacro(szRecvBuffer);
    cout << "<-- RECEIVED " << iBytesReceived << " BYTES -->" << endl;
    if(iBytesReceived == -1)
    tPacketRecv->stop = 0; //disconnected
    }
    
    
    }
    
    void StartMacro(char *buf)
    {
    	SYSTEMTIME st;
    	int value;
    	HWND hwnd = 0;
    	int sendtime;
    	char atime[4] = {buf[4],buf[5],buf[6],buf[7]};
    	//cout << (*((long *) atime)) << endl;
    	value = (*((long *) atime));
    	sendtime = value + 2000;
    	while((value - sendtime) < 0)
    	{
    		GetLocalTime(&st);
    		value = toMilli(st);
    	}
    	cout << "Casting Now" << endl;
    	while(hwnd==0)
    		hwnd = FindWindow("Notepad",NULL);
    
    	SetFocus(hwnd);
    	SendMessage(hwnd,WM_KEYDOWN,VK_F4,0);
    }
    int toMilli(SYSTEMTIME st)
    {
    int time;
    time = (((st.wHour*60)*60)*1000)+((st.wMinute*60)*1000)+(st.wSecond*1000)+st.wMilliseconds;
    return time;
    }
    So I decided to put it in some sort of windows GUI.

    Everything compiles and works. It connects, but the problem is, it does NOT stay connected. Here is my code

    For some reason the same code doesnt stay connect as the other one. Anyone know why?
    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <dos.h>

    };
    void thrReceiveThread(PacketHandeler *tPacketRecv);
    void vSendText(char *szName, char *szMsg);
    void StartMacro(char *buf);
    void Connect();
    int toMilli(SYSTEMTIME st);

    One reason is inexistence. When function Connect(...) returns, the PacketHandeler variable created on the stack is gone too.
