Program Timeout

6 posts in this topic

Group,

I'm looking for a way to time out my script and close "myfile.exe" if it runs longer than 4 mins after executaion. Reason being is that "myfile.exe" runs every 5 mins and I don't wont to have two "myfile.exe" process running at the sametime.

This one will kill itself after 4 minutes...

Local $msg

GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; will display an empty dialog box

AdlibRegister("_AutoExit", 1000 * 60 * 4)

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
WEnd
GUIDelete()

Func _AutoExit()
    Exit (1)
EndFunc   ;==>_AutoExit

Thanks for the help.....this worked out fine.

Is there way to only run "myfile.exe" at one time....just in case I have two running at the same time.

Thanks

Chad
