You may be attempting to close the wrong window. Try making lo global and using that instead of the hwnd that is pass to WindowProcedure(). Not sure if that will fix the problem but its worth a try.

this is without global lo


102 C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Desktop\Test\Test.cpp

`lo' undeclared (first use this function)

I do not know how to set global lo.

OK that working,but he did not show me the parent window.

I'm sorry but your problem is somewhat more complicated than I have time to work on this evening or tomorrow. Hope someone else can help you out now.
