Halt/Freeze/Pause outlook while my prog is running


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to have my program stop outlook and another instant messaging program while it is in a certain mode. This is because people will be scanning barcodes in another room, but instead of having to close out of the programs, I was hoping to have autoit freeze or pause other programs while it is in scanning mode. I found this chunk of code which makes me feel like I am close, but not close enough to what I want to do.

#Include <WinAPI.au3>
$process = _WinAPI_OpenProcess("PROCESS_SUSPEND_RESUME", 1, "outlook.exe")

DllCall("ntdll.dll", "Int", "NtSuspendProcess", "Int", $process)
DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "Int", "CloseHandle", "Int", $process)

I don't have much code to start with, but if anyone has any thoughts, I would be grateful!

Thanks in advance!
