Killing the Script

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys here is my problem

I made a script that opens a file edit its contents and then save the file to another folder, but the thing is the script will be placed thru scheduled tasks which will run every 1 minute. what i want to do is if the script sees itself still running it will let the first run script to continue while the other close itself.

Its kindda difficult to explain so i'll just give an example.

Supposed the script is named Edit.exe it will run by scheduled task every 1 minute, lets say Edit.exe runs at 8:00am and for some reason the script isn't finished executing by 8:01am but the sceduled task will then again run Edit.exe so now i have 2 Edit.exe running.

Question is if the script is still running then run again for the 2nd time will it know that so it can close itself(2nd script)and let the 1st run script to finish executing? i've tried processexists but running this script once already tells that its running.

If ProcessExists("Edit.exe") Then
    MsgBox(0, "Debug", "Running.")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Debug", "Not Running.")
EndIf

If your script have the same name , it will always return that process exists !

Use Pid comparison for know if there are another process or _Singleton function ! Posted Image
