DebugBreakProcess function

Causes a breakpoint exception to occur in the specified process. This allows the calling thread to signal the debugger to handle the exception.

Syntax


BOOL WINAPI DebugBreakProcess(
  _In_  HANDLE Process
);

Parameters

Process [in]

A handle to the process.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

If the process is not being debugged, the function uses the search logic of a standard exception handler. In most cases, this causes the process to terminate because of an unhandled breakpoint exception.
