OnAutoItExitRegister()

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello!

I'm using OnAutoITExitRegister() to start a smtp mailing program when another autoit program exits, it works perfectly if i exit the program normally but if i close my computer it doesn't start the mailing program

any ideas or suggestions? thanks in advance

An Example:

OnAutoItExitRegister("ExitScript")
$log=@desktopdir & "\"

Sleep(10000)
Func ExitScript()
    run($log & "mail.exe")
Endfunc

Perhaps its because your computer is shutting down.

Woooooooooooow, tell me bout it ;)

On to the fact, if you shut down your computer by windows it first closes all of your running programs, so this should actually work

And it does work if you use a msgbox or something...

It's like this I think:

If you shut down your computer, windows sends all active applications a request to shut down and blocks new programs from being started. If a program fails to respons windows forces it to exit. A messagebox does not need to start a new applications, so it's allowed. What you probably want to do is cancel the shutdown, do what you want and then start the shutdown again. (if that's possible)
