You mean "empty", and not "null", right?

comment I downvoted an answer, it was deleted and changed, now I can't un-down-vote
Alternative to notification would be to give the edit a new revision, even in first 5 minutes, if there is at least one downvote on the answer.

comment ShellExecuteEx silently fails in 64-bit call to hidden file
@David, sorry, I thought you weren't serious the first time. Of course there's error checking. It's removed here for clarity. I did mention from the start that ShellExecuteEx actually returns TRUE even when the file is not open, and also hProcess is zero. What more could I put in the question?

@Harry I wish it would be that easy. No, Explorer is set to show hidden files on all machines.

Fixed backslashes. Please note that the code runs okay if file is not hidden.

comment Execute an elevated command in wix
When you say "external installer" do you mean external MSI? It is impossible to install a MSI while another MSI is already installing.

comment when submitted to uva online I am getting run time error
We cannot answer the question "why there's a run time error" because we don't know the input that causes the error. Since the question cannot be answered it is not a good question for Stack Overflow. Try to divide the problem. Submit to the judge just the code that loads the data and always returns "stay home", and see what happens then.

comment Why background thread not exiting when form closes?
That's correct. I guess the answer to OPs question is "there's no misinterpretation, and you're missing something".
