Looks awkward but +1.

Random thought after a week of being fat and happy...

The current behavior of util:CloseApplication only keys off of the process name.  Would anyone be at all interested in an addition to the current behavior of also specifying a directory that the exe must be located in?

It doesn't look like it would be too hard to tweak the existing behavior, with ProcFindAllIdsFromExeName in proc2util.h and https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/tlhelp32/ns-tlhelp32-processentry32w .
