VB.NET Code to Close AutoCAD

I am having some difficulty in finding information on how to close AutoCAD from my VB.NET code. I open it, create a drawing, save and close the drawing, and now I need to close AutoCAD.

 

I'm using VB 2010 Express and here is the code which launches AutoCAD.

 

        Dim vAcadApp As AutoCAD.AcadApplication
        Dim vAcadDoc As AutoCAD.AcadDocument
        vAcadApp = New AutoCAD.AcadApplication
        vAcadApp.Visible = True

 After the drawing is closed I need some way of closing down AutoCAD.

Hallex,

 

Thank you for your reply. That worked, but I think I must find another location to place it because the LISP program which prepares the drawing did not seem to finish before AutoCAD shutdown. Or at least when I opened it up the drawing was missing quite a few lines which would normally have been there.

 

I tried using System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(10000) and that seemed to have helped but one of the blocks which gets inserted is all out of scale. I will have to play around with this some more but many thanks for your reply.
