Executable to close a 3rd party DOS window by name

P: n/a
Can anyone help please.
I need a small executable (either the VB code or the program itself will
do) to run within a batch file to activate a running 3rd party DOS
window (identified by the window name/title) and close it.

Thanks,

I doubt you can execute the code in the batch file, but maybe you can
use these and bypass the batch file.
