I am running a program in Win 3.1 that uses the following line:
        result = Shell ("c:\windows\monitor.exe")

        Note: Monitor.exe is a phony name for an existing .exe file.

Shell returns the unique task identification (ID) of the started

Is there a way from Visual Basic to ask Windows 3.1 if that unique task
ID is still running? Or Minimized? Or Maximized?

Originally, I tried to write this task using C or C++, using:
        result = spawnl(P_WAIT, .......
but discovered spawn(X) does not work with Win 3.1.

Thank you if you can help!
