Program exit codes

Run DOS / Cmd command Action events (68000, 68002, 68202, 68402) and Start program / application Action events (67000, 67002, 67202, 67402) may end with errorlevels or exit codes, that indicate the termination status of executed Command or Application. They can help in finding the particular reason of command's or application's termination.
