5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi guys,

I'm new to this forum and this product as well. I'm trying to buil a simple script that verify if IE is open, if so, display a message to close all open Explorer windows. On the ok botton, force the close. if no IE process if found, just exit. Here's what I came up with. Any help would be really apreciate.

Thanks in advance :(

if ProcessExists("iexplorer.exe") Then

MsgBox(0, "Installation of Exemple.exe", "Please close all Internet Explorer windows in order to proceed with the installation.")

ProcessClose("iexplorer.exe")

End If

Else

Exit

I think the process you'll looking for is just "iexplore.exe" not "iexplorer.exe" . Don't forget you can always check the task manager (Shortcut: CTRL+Shift+Esc) then the process tab to verify which process is named what.

Oh thanks for that. I should have said before it's giving the following error ERROR: syntax error : End if. So it dosent execute. Could somebody help me with the syntaxe error in order to have my script do what I describe in my initial post ?

thanks much.

Your EndIf should be the last line. You posted it with Else coming after EndIf.

Look up If/Else/EndIf again in the help file.

:(

This was what I was looking for . Oh and yeah the Endif was all in one word.Thanks for you help everyone.

if ProcessExists("iexplore.exe") Then

MsgBox(0, "Installation of Testapp.exe", "Please close all IE Windows",3600)

EndIf

$previousPID=-1

$PID = ProcessExists("iexplore.Exe")

While $PID <> 0

If $previousPID<>$PID Then

$previousPID=$PID

ProcessClose($PID)

EndIf

sleep(2000)

$PID = ProcessExists("iexplore.exe")

WEnd

Exit
