Transfer the children processes from a process A to another process A'

3 posts in this topic

Hello folks,

I have done some search around the forum and could not find a clue for this question. So, I kind ask you to point me, if possible, the right direction so I can solve this question. I want to know if it's possible that when a second instance of the process A is run it's able to open a child process under the first instance of the process A. In other words, I would like to know if it is possible to transfer the children processes from a process A' (second instance of process A) to a process A (first instance of process A)?

Point A:

|->Process A.exe (first instance)

|----->Child1.exe

|----->Child2.exe

|----->Child3.exe

Point B:

|->Process A.exe (second instance) - finds out that there is another instance running and instead of running a Child4.exe under himself it forces Child4.exe into Process A.exe (first instance) and exits. This way Process A.exe (first instance) would be like Point C.

Point C:

|->Process A.exe (first instance)

|----->Child1.exe

|----->Child2.exe

|----->Child3.exe

|----->Child4.exe

Thank you for your attention.

Best regards,

Aeolis

if you really insist, have a look at:

_WinAPI_SetParent

but it may be better to understand why you prefer this behaviour, and consider if there are alternative methods to achieve the same goal?

Like orbs, I think it better for you describe things in real world terms, rather than elusive to understanding method you have used.

For instance, what is Process A, and what is it doing? What are child 1 etc and what do they do?

Some code would be extremely helpful too, as we tend to be hands on here, and help you to help yourself.
