The program ‘[4336] name.vshost.exe’ has exited with code [0x0].

The process that killed 4336 name.vshost.exe has exited with code 0x0.

The fact is that some of those programs are created in Microsoft’s Windows 95-style shell. They’re called “VSHOST” because you have to type in the name of the computer (e.g. “C:\\Windows 95”) when you open a shell prompt.

So if you’re using a Windows 95 shell, you’ll have to type in CWindows 95.

This is a bit of a cheat, but it would be pretty easy to find a way to write a program that would just automatically do the same thing that 4336 name.vshost.exe does. The Windows 95 shell uses the VSHOST process and a bunch of special routines to open up the shell, open a command prompt, then execute a command.

The program’s source code is available here. By reading the source you can see that VSHOST is actually just a piece of shell code with a bunch of special routines and a few other functions that run automatically when you open a shell prompt. The code is very simple and very simple to understand.
