I'm running IIS Express 8.0 for test automation with no user intervention by executing iisexpress.exe with some parameters to start it which works fine, and now I'm trying to find a way to stop running instance of iisexpress and I was hoping there would
be a parameter to shutdown like 'iisexpress.exe /shutdown' or something but there is no command line support to stop it.
I just tried killing iisexpress process and it seems to work. Are there any known side effects caused by killing iisexpress process?

Kill the iisexpress process will stop all the worker processes. So all the websites hosted on IIS will be stopped.
And the Q will only stop the site you want to stop.
