restarting service/app.

4 posts in this topic

Hello im making a new quick launch classic look and feel for windows 7.

I have to make some changes to the taskbar, however before the user see the changes. The computer needs to be restarted or explorer restarted.

like this script does, however the script does not work good. Sometimes it restart explorer, sometimes it does not. And some times it start explorer twice resulting in opening the libarian folder.

So im asking for a better method that can be more safe for users that open this program.

;End Windows Explorer.

While ProcessExists ( "explorer.exe" )
ProcessClose ( "explorer.exe" )
WEnd

sleep(3000)

;Restart Windows Explorer.
Run("explorer.exe")
If NOT ProcessExists("explorer.exe") Then Run("explorer.exe")

There is some years I needed to restart my explorer who often crashed and I used this

While ProcessExists ( "explorer.exe" )
   ProcessClose ( "explorer.exe" )
WEnd  
Sleep ( 4000 )
While Not ProcessExists ( "explorer.exe" )
   Run ( @WindowsDir & "\explorer.exe" ) 
   Sleep ( 1000 )
WEnd  
Exit

ControlSend ( "Program Manager", "", "", "{F5}" )
