i was wondering if this was possible...
i have an executable that spawns and monitors the spawned process. if it
takes longer than 30 seconds i kill this process and the main executable
exits. however what i now want to do is this.
if the main executable for some odd, unknown reason goes into a weird state,
i was going to kill it with TerminateProcess (). however i wanted to know if
it is possible to intercept this message in the main executable and then in
turn kill the sub process that i had spawned off.
here's it visually:
mainExe ---> spawnedProcess
if mainExe gets into bad state kill it
killExe ---TerminateProcess () ---> mainExe ---> spawnedProcess
* -- intercept
this message and kill spawned process before closing
