    this is so easy but its not working heres my code
    Code:
    @echo off
    
    tskill drwatson.exe
    
    
    rem backup kill process
    
    taskkill drwatson.exe
    its suppose to remove a 16 BIT program from the memory but it isnt :mad:

    NOTE does 16 BIT have anything to with it i think it does

    Does the path actually encompass the folders those applications are in?

    Yes it does. You need to kill ntvdm.exe (The 32 bit interface to the 16 bit process.) and it will kill the all the processes the dos virtual machine runs)

    If you use the command prompt you'll see the error, Cannot find process, if you try to directly kill drwatson.exe


    pskill won't work either for the same reason.
