CApplication Excel

When I launch Excel from my application using

CApplication app;
app.CreateDispa tch("Excel.Appl ication");

then close it later with

app.Quit();

the Excel process still remains on my system until I kill it manually with
Task Manager. Why does Quit() not kill the process, and how do I kill it
from within my program? I have already tried using the Process class and its
methods, but that only works on my local machine so it is not a viable
solution for me.

There's a significant problem in automating Excel from VB .NET. Reminds me of a problem I encountered almost 3 years ago that was caused by the Norton Auntie Virus Office plug-in. Can anybody reproduce the behavior described below? For this example, I am using Excel 2002 and VS .NET 2002 and VB 6. MSFT KB article 304661 gives a trivial example of early and late binding to Excel from VB .NET. Note that there is a variable naming...

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,...
