I'm trying to build a program that detects a specific name of a child process. After it does that, I want it to close and open that whole .exe again. But I'm getting a few build errors:

warning C4244: '=': conversion from 'int' to 'float', possible loss of data

error C4996: 'localtime': This function or variable may be unsafe. Consider using localtime_s instead. To disable deprecation, use _CRT_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS.

warning C4244: 'argument': conversion from 'wchar_t' to 'const _Elem', possible loss of data

Please help.
