Terminating external application

Posted by Thomas L on January 14, 2009

Dear DelphiLand,

I have been successfully using ShellExecute to launch a separate exe in my delphi code (a movie player), but don't have as good a solution for terminating the player. I have been using Taskkill in a bat file, running it with ShellExecute, but it is not always reliable.

Is there a better solution for terminating a hosted exe, preferably without messing with a bat file?

Thank you very much for any help you can provide. This has been a really annoying problem.

And happy new year,
