I use ShellExecute to execute IE opens some CGI script like:

HINSTANCE result = ShellExecute(NULL, _T("open"), mUrl, NULL,NULL, cmdshow );

Is it true?
And when I created, the handle is result?
And how to close this dialog by coding in my program?
Another way to run CGI script?

Please help me! thank you very much!

Use ShellExecuteEx instead, this function returns a handle to the newly created process, you can then use this handle to help you terminate the process, and do various other things with it.

Check out this for info on this function.

Here is an example in VB...

cbSize As Long
fMask As Long
hwnd As Long
lpVerb As String
lpFile As String
lpParameters As String
lpDirectory As String
nShow As Long
hInstApp As Long
' Optional fields
lpIDList As Long
lpClass As String
hkeyClass As Long
dwHotKey As Long
hIcon As Long
hProcess As Long
End Type
Public Declare Function GetExitCodeProcess Lib "kernel32" (ByVal hProcess As Long, lpExitCode As Long) As Long
Public Declare Function Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMicroSecs As Long) As Long
Public Declare Function ShellExecuteEx Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteExA" (lpExecInfo As SHELLEXECUTEINFO) As Long

I use ShellExecuteEx, but my handle always = 0x00000000.

and this function always return TRUE!

Hang on one moment.... you are complaining that it is failing, but not posting any details?

When it returns TRUE, what is the value in the hInstApp member of the SHELLEXECUTEINFO struct? Is it 32 or below? And what do you have contained in the hProcess member of the same struct? And when you complain that your handle is NULL, what handle are you talking about?
