Delete file on program exit/close

Hi
Does anybody know how I could delete a file if and when the program is closed using the close (x) button and also (if possible but not necessary) do the same if the process for the program is killed. At the moment I am only able to do this if the ESC key is pressed. i.e. if the ESC key is pressed the program exits and the file in question is deleted.
Thanks for any help.

Windows?

If so, your window with the focus will get a WM_KEYDOWN notification. Just test for the close key and if that's the key, delete your file.

You do this in your WinProc.

Hi
I was talking about the x button in the titlebar of the window.
I'm not sure but the way you have just mentioned is for the x button on the keyboard. Sorry for any misunderstanding.
Thanks, hope you can help
P.s I am using VC++ 6 on Windows XP Pro
