Hello VEE users:
I have a test program that communicates with a network card through a
DDE server program. My VEE program sends DDE requests to the DDE
server, which broadcasts data over a dedicated network. The DDE
server has no exit command, so once it gets started it can only be
stopped manually. Only a single copy of the DDE server is allowed at
I need to be able to kill the existing copy of the DDE server program
at the beginning of my VEE application so that I can launch a new copy
with the proper configuration settings.
I am running VEE 4.01 and 5.0 under Windows95.
Anybody have a good way to kill an active program by name?
Does the WIndows API have the necessary functions? If so, what DLL
should be used and what header file entries are required?
