I'm using the CreateProcess API in Visul C++. I would like to start a Windows Program & let it run. if(CreateProcess ( NULL, "notepad.exe", NULL, NULL, 0, NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS, NULL, NULL, &si, &pi )) { CloseHandle(pi.hThread); CloseHandle(pi.hProcess); } Is it OK just to let the NotePad.exe run in the background? I'm not sure if what I'm doing is "correct." I do not need to see the NotePad end. Thanks.
