    Terminate an external program

    I've looked around and can't find a way of terminating an external program. Is this even possible? Can anyone help?

    Cheers.

    In Windows, you can use taskkill.exe to terminate another program. You can execute this with the Special Object → Run an external program.

    For example:
    taskkill.exe /F /IM notepad.exe

    Would forcefully (/F) kill the process (/IM) notepad.exe

    Hi Tinez,
    There is one object called "Process Viewer" that should be able to do the job. Here you have an example http://oulydev.free.fr/download/mmf2/processviewer.mfa if you need.

    Sweet, thanks to you both for your responses.

    lh37's answer works like a charm, cheers.

    ouly, it would appear that I'd possibly need MMF2dev to use the "Process Viewer", not regular MMF2.

    Thanks again.
