A handle to the client or server window posting the message.
This parameter is not used.
While waiting for confirmation of the termination, the posting application should not post any other messages to the receiving application. If the sending application receives messages (other than WM_DDE_TERMINATE) from the receiving application, it should delete any atoms or shared memory objects accompanying the messages, except global memory objects associated with WM_DDE_POKE or WM_DDE_DATA messages that do not have the fRelease member set.
The client or server application should respond by posting a WM_DDE_TERMINATE message.
