Hi,

what do you mean by start? Clicking a button?

You can use an Autoit script to check for ProcessExists in a loop and then react on the click and/or processes. 


Scripts & functions Organize Includes Let Scite organize the include files

Yahtzee The game "Yahtzee" (Kniffel, DiceLion)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

Internet-Café Server/Client Application Open CD, Start Browser, Lock remote client, etc.

MultipleFuncsWithOneHotkey Start different funcs by hitting one hotkey different times

Steam is for content.  This discussion should be legit.

If that is ALL he is doing, I would somewhat agree. Steam is also used to launch a game. I say lets have a moderator weigh in and make a decision.

 

xbmc is open i want to launch steam from xbmc an when steam open's i want xbmc to close then when i close steam i want xbmc to open again.

 

I believe that is all he is doing with the script he's looking for.

@OP: Put some effort into scripting and post your attempts, it can be done.

ok, from what I can find XMBC is this: http://xbmc.org/

If he simply wants to switch from one to another than he can use Run, ProcessClose, ProcessExist.
