Terminate Method of Process class

Method | Member of  ScriptUtils.Process | Changes | Purchase | Download


Terminates the process and all of its threads.


Process.Terminate (ExitCode as Long)

Where Type Optional Default Description
 ExitCode  Long     Specifies the exit code for the process and for all threads terminated as a result of this call. 


The TerminateProcess function is used to unconditionally cause a process to exit. Use it only in extreme circumstances.

TerminateProcess causes all threads within a process to terminate, and causes a process to exit, but DLLs attached to the process are not notified that the process is terminating.

Terminating a process causes the following:

1. All of the object handles opened by the process are closed.

2. All of the threads in the process terminate their execution.

3. The state of the process object becomes signaled, satisfying any threads that had been waiting for the process to terminate.

4. The states of all threads of the process become signaled, satisfying any threads that had been waiting for the threads to terminate.

5. The termination status of the process changes from STILL_ACTIVE to the exit value of the process.

Terminating a process does not cause child processes to be terminated.

Terminating a process does not necessarily remove the process object from the system. A process object is deleted when the last handle to the process is closed.
