 launching 16 bit app from 32 bit

I am working with windows NT and Visual Basic 4.0 Beta.
My problem is as follows:
        I am launching a win16 app from a (vb4.0) win32 application using VB's Shell command.  
The return value from the Shell is a value that I cannot identify.  It does not seem to be a
process id, thread id, or a windows handle.  And it doesn't work with the WaitForSingleObject
function or the OpenProcess function.  Does anyone know what this value is and how I can use it
to monitor or close the win16 app?
        Basically I am looking to be able to check for existance or close this win16 app from my
own win32 app.  How could I accomplish this?  If anyone knows the win32 API calls that I should
make (and what to pass the API functions) I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

                                        Thanks for your time,
David Maw

Umm, thats a bit difficult for us mortals with version 3...
Any juicy details about v4.0? How big is vbrun400 or whatever?

For us it's an Instance handle. (Do they exist in Win95 - Is that what thread
handles are?)

I've got more important things to do than a {*filter*}y .sig file, alright?!
