OK. You still missed to provide information on how you start the 
crashing program from the remaining program - certain approaches don't 
allow simple access to the result (e.g. checking whether it's still 
running or accessing the process exit code), whereas others do. However, 
in general, you need to redirect the output and stderr handles (e.g. to 
a pipe if doing it under Linux, but a file would do as well) and read 
them from the remaining program. As an example, TProcess (in unit 
Process) provides means for all of this.
