    My comment:
    The GetWindow function is used to obtain handles to all windows siblings to the main VFP window (having the equal rank), excluding the Program Manager window.

    Ths PostMessage function called with WM_SYSCOMMAND and SC_CLOSE works more effectively.

    That is for sure, the both ways can be of some sort destructive for the application. Especially the TerminateProcess is. Check description for this function on the MSDN.
