Console painting over Quickwin window

Console painting over Quickwin window

For convenience and safety I launch an old Fortran ?legacy? console program from my Quickwin application using the techniques previously discussed in this forum and in the samples (using createprocess etc). It all works very well except that if the user moves the console window about the desktop the Quickwin windows are painted over by the console window so that there appear to be numerous copies of the console window pasted all over the Quickwin windows. Once the console app terminates the Quickwin application releases the console handle for the process, the console window copies all disappear. However I can?t close the process handle prematurely (i.e as soon as the process is launched) as it needs to passed to ?waitforsingleobject? and ?getexitcodeprocess? routines. Any ideas of how to get around this?

Thanks for any assistance

Ed
