Wait for process to finish after starting app

Recommended Posts


I have a script that looks like this

RunAs($sUserName, @ComputerName, $sPassword, 0, $app, $path)

All of the variables gets passed in and this works.

Except, I want to keep the autoit script exe running until the application I started with the script finishes.

Is there a good way to do this?

Run a loop while the started process exists and when it exits, you carry on with your script: :mellow:

While ProcessExists("Process name")

The Sleep is important or you eat up your CPU. :P

RunAsWait() should work for you.
