Process.Exit event not being raised

Hi there,

I'm running a process object within a .NET app, very simple, the process
is declared with events, i'm handling the Exit event and running a win32
application. No matter how the process closes the event is never raised, is
this because it is a win32 app rather than .NET? I've tried closing,
killing, and even sending a WM_CLOSE event to the window, it closes but no
event is raised.

My only other solution was to keep monitoring the HasExited property on
a background thread but I would rather use the event as that is what it was
created for. Thanks in advance if anyone has any advice on this!

Did you set the process' EnableRaisingEvents property?

Make sure your process object's 'EnableRaisingEvents' property is set to
true. Alternatively you can start a new thread which starts the other
application and calls the process object's 'WaitForExit' method afterwards.

Hi there,

Not to worry, I'm calling the WaitForExit method in a separate thread to
get around the problem.
