Posted by tom c on November 15, 2001 at 5:00 AM

looks like everyone has the same problem. let me know if anyone of you know how to kill it.

> Hi Anand,

> I would like know how to kill the exe process running which is started by process.runtime.exec. The process.runtime.destroy method does dismantle the process object, but the subprocess is still running. I have check this by putting the subprocess in contineous while loop. Please advice.
