DOC: Incomplete Description of ExitWindows()

Q100359



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK)





SUMMARY

The description of the ExitWindows function does not list the code that you can use to terminate Windows and return control to MS-DOS.



MORE INFORMATION

Page 290 of the Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) "Programming Reference, Volume 2: Functions" manual for version 3.1 states that the ExitWindows function can be used to terminate Windows and return control to MS-DOS. However, the description doesn't list the code needed to exercise this feature of the ExitWindows function.

To allow the ExitWindows function to terminate Windows and return control to MS-DOS, pass a zero as the dwReturnCode parameter.
