CreateProcess() Windows NT

CreateProcess() Windows NT

CreateProcess() Windows NT

(OP)
I am trying to start a 16 bit windows program on a NT terminal, via the CreateProcess() function. It works ok, but the resulting PROCESS_INFORMATION structure only has the hProcess member populated. hThread, dwProcessld and dwThreadId all return zero. This does not happen with Windows 98. Any ideas anyone?

RE: CreateProcess() Windows NT

Here an example which I used with Windows NT

==========================================================
// create Command
STARTUPINFO sti;
_PROCESS_INFORMATION pi;

pgpcmd(cmd,PGPSIGNEXT,"","");

// Setup Flags
flags=NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS;
flags |=CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP;
flags |=CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE;

// Get Process information
GetStartupInfo(&sti);
// Start with Window closed
sti.wShowWindow =SW_SHOWMINIMIZED;

// Start Task
if(!( CreateProcess(NULL,cmd,NULL,NULL,false,flags,NULL,"./",&sti,&pi)))
   erc=GetLastError();
============================================================

Good Luck

RE: CreateProcess() Windows NT

Perhaps the reason for your problem is: Windows NT Creates an own Partition for each DOS Application.
