script won't stop in spite of Ctrl-Break

Recommended Posts



I have a script that has suddenly stopped obeying the Ctrl-Break command. In the SciTE bottom window I can see that AutoIT did get the message by displaying

>Process failed to respond; forcing abrupt termination...

>Exit code: 1 Time: 142.206

However, I can still observe the script working (opening file dialogs, importing files into programs etc.)! This has not happened before - any ideas?


I am working on automating processing of microscope images with AutoIT. My script opens a program called PICOLAY that imports a 'z-stack' of image files, and exports the result (a sharpened picture). This is repeated for a matrix of positions and the results are then opened into Microsoft Image Composited Editor that 'sticthes them together.

All of this is then repeated for a timeseries.

Best regards, Lars

Post the script or a small reproducer demonstrating the problem. Otherwise we're just guessing. It sounds like your script starts another program and that program continues after you end your script, but without some idea of what's happening...

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
