Hello,
I have a windows application that launches IE9 and leaves the window application minimized.
Is there anyway to kill it after launching IE9?
Windows App()
{
Launch IE9
Sleep time
Kill Windows App()
}

Can someone guide me in how to do it in C#

Thanks for your help

Hi,

Try this:
// launch IE9
// Sleep time
Application.Exit(); // Kill Windows App

The the code example. It will lunch notepad from a windows application then kill that windows application.

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    string exeFilePath = @"C:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe";
    Process.Start(exeFilePath);
    Process.GetCurrentProcess().Kill();
}

S.M Thanks but I should not have buttons, just a small plain form.
I am using Environment. Exit(0); but I am getting a System.NullReferenceException. I have posted already a question.

Instead of button click event you can do it Form_Load event.
