    My program process.

    When I have a program running.
    And another program kills my programs process.
    Can I detect my process being killed?

    I am trying to detect my programs process being killed.
    So I can clean up (deleting any memory I set aside).

    Re: My program process.

    It depends upon how your process is being killed. If another program sends/posts WM_CLOSE message (or WM_SYSCOMMAND with SC_CLOSE option) to the main window of your program it is possible to handle closing and provide a cleanup.
    In the case of TerminateProcess no cleanup is possible.

    One aside note: AFAIK, the system frees all resources when the process terminates, so it is not obviously necessary to take care of allocated memory when the process ends unexpectedly.
