AnswerComplete code for CreateProcess and loop Pin
jkirkerx21-Feb-12 16:26

This is the complete code I wrote.

If no one has an objection to the GetExitCodeProcess in the loop, I'll stick with it because it works. I just thought it was completely wrong to use, or perhaps I'm just getting better at this.

C#
if (CreateProcess(sz_SQLServer_Install_FileName, szParameters, NULL, NULL, FALSE, CREATE_DEFAULT_ERROR_MODE | NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS, 0, sz_SQLServer_Install_FolderPath, &si, &pi) ) {
        while(WAIT_TIMEOUT == WaitForSingleObject(pi.hProcess, 10)) {
            MSG oMSG;
            while(::PeekMessage(&oMSG, NULL, 0,0, PM_NOREMOVE)) {
                if(::GetMessage(&oMSG, NULL, 0,0) ) {
                    ::TranslateMessage(&oMSG);
                    ::DispatchMessage(&oMSG);
                }
                else {
                    break;
                }

                // Run the Cosmetics on the MDI Window
                if (ndx != 100) {
                    SendMessage(g_SQLServer_Install_Progress_Bar, PBM_SETPOS, (WPARAM)ndx, 0);
                    UpdateWindow(g_SQLServer_Install_MDIWindow);
                    Sleep(100);
                    ++ndx;

                }
                else {
                    if( iMO == 0 ) {
                        SetWindowText(g_SQLServer_Install_Progress_Text, L"Installation may take up to 30 minutes");
                        iMO = 1;
                    }
                    else {
                        SetWindowText(g_SQLServer_Install_Progress_Text, L"Installing Microsoft SQL Server Express 2008");
                        iMO = 0;
                    }

                    UpdateWindow(g_SQLServer_Install_MDIWindow);
                    ndx = 0;
                }

                // Check the process to see if it's still running
                GetExitCodeProcess(pi.hProcess, (unsigned long *)&exit_status);
                if (exit_status != 259)
                    break;
            }
        }

        GetExitCodeProcess(pi.hProcess, (unsigned long *)&exit_status);
        if (exit_status == 0) {
            // The program completed successfully
            SendMessage(g_SQLServer_Install_MDIWindow, WM_COMMAND, (WPARAM)g_SQLServer_Install_IDC_COMMAND, (LPARAM)g_SQLServer_Install_IDM_COMPLETE );
        }
        else {
            // The program was either canceled or failed for some reason
            SendMessage(g_SQLServer_Install_MDIWindow, WM_COMMAND, (WPARAM)g_SQLServer_Install_IDC_COMMAND, (LPARAM)g_SQLServer_Install_IDM_CANCEL );
        }

        CloseHandle(pi.hProcess);
        CloseHandle(pi.hThread);
        exitCode = 1;
        bResult = TRUE;
