Killing compiled exe kills all the process it created

Recommended Posts

kadanefewi

Hey people.

I want to keep running a process executed by the main compiled script after I kill the process, using ProcessKill.

The problem is that after killing the parent process, the children is also terminated. I tried using Run, ShellExecute (what I need to run are batch commands BTW).

Anyway to prevent this behavior? All I can think of is creating a scheduled task to keep it alive after closing the main one, but it might be unreliable, depending on the system.

Why do you need to kill the parent process? If you exit the main process do the child processes get killed as well?

I was reviewing the code to post it here... I'm not a smart man, I was closing the bat and not the main exe! Was calling the wrong variable, thanks for the help, you made me realize my mistake!

      Is this possible with autoit?
      What I want to do:
      Create a Desctop windows shortcut to run an executable application created with autoit, which shortcut would have some parameters which will send as a variable to the aplicagion .
      For example:
      Create an app : ExampleAppCreatedByAutoit.exe
      Run this with a shortcut which has:  "C:/ExampleAppCreatedByAutoit.exe" -option1
      What I want to do is the ExampleAppCreatedByAutoit.exe take the option1 and do something like this: Shellexecute("c:\myfolder\option1.exe")
      Can I do that?
      Thanks,

      I want to detect if exact process or window uses directx or opengl or maybe something else library used in applications.
      Thats becouse there could be many windows with same names and different names and the same with process. I got so much process names I want to my script works with all, so i want standardize.
      All of this processes uses DirectX or OpenGL so then If I check this window/process uses these libraries I will be sure thats the right process

      I'm trying to kill a malware process, that I can't remove with my www.sophus.com/hom antivirus.

      The malware is known as coinminer,config and my Sophus only creates popups of blocking the malware.

      I know that the malware is constantly launching a svchost *32.exe processes, where the svchost.exe processes are from my Windows 7 operating system.
      I have with no luck tried to do this:
      Global $_bStatus = False
      While $_bStatus = False
                 Global $_iPid
                 Global $_sActiveTitleNew = "svchost *32.exe"
                 $_iPid = WinGetProcess($_sActiveTitleNew)
                 If $_iPid <> -1 Then $_bStatus = ProcessClose($_iPid)   
      Wend
      EXIT
       
      But the $_iPid doesn't ever show anything else than  -1, even if I can see the svchost *32.exe process in my TaskManager
       
      YES - I know I shouldn't EXIT after killing the first malware detection, but it is easier to explain the above for you, so I can get a solution.

      So I just got a new computer, and instantly went and installed Autoit onto it. I selected run script as default action when clicking on an au3 file, however every time I do this it opens the script in the editor. I can from there run the script no problem.
      I've tried reinstalling and checking the settings by hitting "Ctrl+1" and have confirmed it is set to run, but yet it just continues to open in the editor.
      Any ideas why this is happening or how to solve?
      New system is windows 10, old was windows 7

      Hi AutoIters!
       
      Im trying to launch a .exe file that is nested within the program files (x86) folder structure. i have already used the standard RunAs Syntax and found that it fails to launch the application. I have switched to Run and that seems to work. My issue is I have to use RunAs as the applicaton would need to run under a completely different account. The Current logged in user is a Local User on the machine, however, the application must be run as a domain user. The Machine is domain connected.
       
       have tried the following:
      RunAs("username","logonpassword", $RUN_LOGON_PROFILE, "D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") The above fails to launch, there are no errors or syntax issues, it just does nothing when the variables are replaced for the correct values.
      I did the same using the Run command
      Run("D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") That seems to work fine, but runs in local user context. Any thoughts? Could it be a local Machine rights issue? Or have i missed something glaring in my script
