How to restart a script ?

Recommended Posts


I'm using a script luncher for tests on a main script like this :

Run (@AutoItExe & ' ' & @ScriptDir & '\TabTest.au3 ' & $param, @ScriptDir)

If I call the script again, I have the same script running twice.

How to detect if the script is running and stop it before lunching ?

Try the _Singleton() function from misc.au3

From the help file: Enforce a design paradigm where only one instance of the script may be running.

Something like


should do the trick, although I don't know how the function behaves if the script is not compiled...

EDIT: Looks like I haven't seen yet the latest version of the UDF... corrected Function call

or you can do

if WinExists("mytitle") then WinClose("mytitle")

TCP server and client - Learning about TCP servers and clients connection
Au3 oIrrlicht - Irrlicht project
Au3impact - Another 3D DLL game engine for autoit. (3impact 3Drad related)

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
