AusTEX Posted May 13, 2011 Report Share Posted May 13, 2011 I have an application where I have to call a third party dll to do some calculations. Sometimes these calculation can take a long time and I would like to be able to provide the user with a stop button so they can abort the calculation. So far I haven't been able to figure out how I can abort the dll before it is finished. I thought I might be able to use the taskkill command (this is on a windows XP machine). I can use the taskkill command to shut down any exe that is running but either it doesn't work for stopping a dll or maybe I don't have the syntax right. I also tried using the VI server to abort the vi that calls the dll but that didn't work either. Any ideas on how I can abort the dll? Quote Link to comment
