    Using VB Can we stop a batch file which is running?
    Scenario
    c:\vbtest.bat


    contents of vbtest.bat
    start c:\myexample.exe
    dir

    contents of myexample.exe
    ------
    check for username and password
    if password is wrong
    I should stop that vbtest ie dir should not be executed.Any ideas or questions let me know?

    All you can do is end the batch file but it depends on where it will quit. All you have to do see use the FindWindow API and sent that batch file window the kill signal.
