Enables or disables termination protection for the application.
int ToggleProcessProtection(int bEnabled);
INT ToggleProcessProtection(BOOL bEnabled);
This method controls the termination protection mechanism, which applications can enable to prevent their process and threads from being terminated. If successful, this method returns true; otherwise, it returns false.
The Enabled parameter specifies whether termination protection should be enabled (true) or disabled (false); it is disabled by default. If termination protection is enabled, an application must disable it before attempting to exit.
Important: When developing a GUI-based application, please keep in mind that the termination protection mechanism does not intercept window notifications like WM_CLOSE, WM_QUIT, etc.; applications must intercept and handle such messages themselves if they wish to protect their UI. Please refer to Microsoft's Window Notifications articles for more information.
Error Handling (C++)
This method returns a Boolean value; after it returns, call the GetLastErrorCode() method to obtain its result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.
