Category   :Windows API
Platform    :All Windows

I am using the WinExec function in my Windows program.
I obtain the handle to the window to destroy it ( i.e . get its 
handle and use SendMessage with a WM_DESTROY message). If I 
execute a windows program using WinExec everything works fine in
Windows95. However if I execute a DOS program, the program on 
termination leaves a window with a "finished - program name" 
window text. 
Even though I am able to obtain the windows handle ( I checked 
it by changing the window text ) I am unable to destroy it .


You should choose Properties for your DOS-app (or correspondong
.pif) in the explorer and check the 'Close on exit' checkbox.
