Closing the Windows quickstarter from a macro

There seems to be no obvious way to close quickstart.exe (the Apache OpenOffice icon in the system tray) using UNO. Indeed, "quickstart -killtray" itself does it by searching the running system processes for one with the correct name and path. The following Basic snippet is a work-around that is OK for some purposes:

  sub KillQuickstarter()
      ' Runs "quickstart -killtray"
      subst = CreateUnoService("")
      quickstartPath = subst.substituteVariables("$(prog)/quickstart", 1)
      shell(quickstartPath, 0, "-killtray")
  end sub
