Application::Ex it() vs Environment::Ex it() in .NET multithreading

I am currently reading a chapter involving multithreading, and some sample code calls
Environment::Ex it() to terminate the application with all threads.
What is the difference from Application::Ex it()? Does Application::Ex it() terminate only
the main thread and background threads, and not the foreground threads?

Application::Ex it() transmits a WM_QUIT to all message pumps, informing them
to quit their processing, terminates application windows then ends
application processing. It is used in a Windows Forms application to
gracefully end it.

Environment::Ex it() terminates the currently running process (and all it's
threads), then posts an exit code. This is the non-graceful way to terminate
a Windows Forms application, as any and all message that haven't been
processed yet (such as saving or uploading current changes) will be lost as
soon as the process terminates.

Thus, Application::Ex it() will wait until the application is ready to
terminate, then closes it while Environment::Ex it() will instantly terminate
an application..

Hope this answers your question.

I am trying to close my application using Application.exit() in the frmMain_Closing event. When the form closes the process does not. My application only has one form (no other classes either). The form has a really long loop which generates approx. 700 .csv files. I do not create any threads myself (Application.exitthread() doesn't work either). To counteract this I have decided to use the Environment.exit(-1) method instead. What...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
