Here’s a question that came from a customer. By now, you should already have the necessary psychic powers to answer it.
Our program calls
ExitProcess(1)to indicate that it exited unsuccessfully. The process that launched our program waits for the program to exit and then calls
GetExitCodeProcessto retrieve the exit code. The function succeeds, but the exit code is zero! How can this be?
Hint: Read about how processes terminate on Windows XP.
