Hi ,
i've got a code that terminates an another application.
The problem is , that the other application runs as service and its caption changes all the time , and my
code terminates only if it detects the window name of the service app.

What i want , is to terminate the exename of that application , which is listed in task list (CTRL+ALT+DEL -> LIST #2).
The caption is : "Testprj.exe".

Heres my simple code:

s:=FindWindow(Nil, 'Testprj.exe') ;
PostMessage(s, WM_QUIT, 0, 0) ;
and
s:=FindWindow(Nil, 'Testprj') ;
PostMessage(s, WM_QUIT, 0, 0) ;

but it doesnt work.
Can you help please?

edit---
Also i've searched on google but i couldnt find anything better _

    Hi,

    You'll get class name by GetClassName function:

    GetClassName(hWnd: HWND; lpClassName: PChar; nMaxCount: Integer);

    hWnd: the Handle you've got by FindWindow.
    lpClassName: points to the buffer that is to receive the class name string.
    nMaxCount: max. Length of the Result in lpClassName.

    Now the problem is still: how to get the hWnd value, since FindWindow() cannot find the correct window?

    Hi,

    Check out these functions:
    OpenSCManager: it gives you a handle to Service Manager
    GetServiceKeyName: to obtain the service' real name by its display name
    OpenService: it gives you the handle by its name
    ControlService, CloseService, DeleteService

    I hope this is what you need.
