I have 3 compiled vb6 projects. They all interact with each other but are kept as separate exe's to ease upgrading etc.
I can use shell or shellexecute to run the other exe files from within an exe but I cannot fully close the calling exe file. I can get it to dissapear from everywhere except the Task Manager. Using accepted solution found here it tells me its been killed, but it hasn't really.
What I am trying to achieve is as follows:
1.exe calls 2.exe, as 2,exe loads it closes 1.exe.
2.exe calls 3.exe which as it loads closes 2.exe
3.exe calls 1,exe and again, as 1,exe loads it closes 3.exe etc etc.
The user could quite well keep flitting about between the exe files and I can't imaging what it would do the pc memory if they don't unload as they go.
Any pointers much appreciated
