Function Reference


Terminates the specified process and all of its threads

#include <WinAPIProc.au3>
_WinAPI_TerminateProcess ( $hProcess [, $iExitCode = 0] )


$hProcess A handle to the process to be terminated. The handle must have the $PROCESS_TERMINATE access right.
$iExitCode [optional] The exit code to be used by the process and threads terminated as a result of this call.

Return Value

Success: True
Failure: False


This function stops execution of all threads within the process and requests cancellation of all pending I/O.
The terminated process cannot exit until all pending I/O has been completed or cancelled. When a process terminates,
its kernel object is not destroyed until all processes released their open handles.

This function is asynchronous; it initiates termination and returns immediately. If you need to be sure the
process has terminated, call the _WinAPI_WaitForSingleObject() function with a handle to the process.

A process cannot prevent itself from being terminated.
