Restart Programm

Recommended Posts

I want to restart a program, if the window or process closes, the program gets crashed and so on.
I used Runwait in a While loop, that worked so far really good.

Now I got the problem that Windows sometimes does show me this window

it is not excatly that one but looks close to it.

So I want to close that window immidiatly if it appears.

Okay, as per our chat in the Chatbox, I will provide an example here shortly.

This is the basic idea I was mentioning.

Global $check, $vshost

$vshost = @WindowsDir & "\vshost.exe"

AdlibRegister("MyAdLibFunc", 250)

Run($vshost)

$check = 1

Func MyAdLibFunc()
    If $check = 1 Then
        If Not ProcessExists("vshost.exe") Then
            Run($vshost)
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>MyAdLibFunc

You can adjust that 250 milliseconds to what you want. Basically the "MyAdLibFunc" function will be called repeatedly every 250 milliseconds or until you close your GUI or click STOP.

$vshost is obviously just an example of a path.

You can use a button in your GUI to both Run the program you want to watch, plus set $check = 1

You can also add in a window check too if you want, with WinExists etc.

You could also add a STOP button, to set AdlibUnRegister( "MyAdLibFunc") or just have that run when your GUI closes.

EDIT

Strictly speaking, you don't really need to use $check = 1, but that can provide greater flexibility if you need it (i.e. you could use START and STOP monitoring buttons). Even with that, you could just enable and disable the Adlib function at need and not use the $check flag. It all depends on what else you might be doing.

Further to that, I suggest you whip up some code for your GUI etc, and provide it here for us to help you troubleshoot, if need be.

      Hey guys,
      I having some hard times getting false-positive, probably because I am trying to execute my AutoUpdater.
      Here is my code:
       
      Global $iUpdateTimer = 0 While 1 checkUpdates(10) WEnd Func checkUpdates($iDelay = 10) $iDelay = $iDelay * 1000 * 60 If TimerDiff($iUpdateTimer) > $iDelay Then ConsoleWrite('checking for updates...' & @CRLF) $iUpdateTimer = TimerInit() If FileExists('AutoUpdater.exe') Then ShellExecuteWait('AutoUpdater.exe') ; this is the line which cause my problem EndIf EndFunc And AutoUpdater code:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3> Global $sExecName = 'test.exe' Global $sUpdatePath = @UserProfileDir &'\desktop\AnyAppName\update\'& $sExecName Global $sUserPath = @UserProfileDir &'\desktop\AnyAppName\'& $sExecName Global $sCopyright = 'someUniqueStringHere' If Not FileExists($sUpdatePath) Then Exit 0 If FileGetVersion($sUpdatePath, $FV_LEGALCOPYRIGHT) <> $sCopyright Then Exit 0 ; checking if we really want to update and execute the file If FileGetVersion($sUpdatePath) > FileGetVersion($sUserPath) Then $iResponse = MsgBox(BitOR($MB_YESNO, $MB_ICONQUESTION),'AnyAppName', 'There is an update available, would you like to update?') If $iResponse == $IDYES Then If ProcessExists($sExecName) Then ProcessClose($sExecName) Sleep(500) EndIf FileCopy($sUpdatePath, $sUserPath, $FC_OVERWRITE) Sleep(3000) ShellExecute($sUserPath) Exit 1 EndIf EndIf Exit 0 I am not trying to ask, why is my code is getting recognized as false-positive, because this is quite obvious, but is there any other way to get things done without running external process?

      Hi everyone.
      I want to ask about this : 
      I want it runs from 1 to 100 and It opens 10 firefox profiles then access youtube. After I close a firefox window, the loop runs and wait for another window close until loop ends
      I have a loop like this.
      Func launch() Local $from = Int(GUICtrlRead($input1)) Local $to = Int(GUICtrlRead($input2)) If $to <> "" Then While $from <= $to Local $profile = $to _RunDos("start firefox.exe -p " & $profile & " -no-remote youtube.com") $to=$to+1 WEnd Else Local $profile = $to _RunDos("start firefox.exe -p " & $profile & " -no-remote youtube.com") EndIf EndFunc Is there any solution?
      Thank you!

      First off, the project I'm working on revolves around AS/400 "Client Access software", it's foundation is directly influenced by the thread linked at the bottom of this post. Moving on, to explain the problem I'm facing; my project utilizes an infinite While loop and automatically performs semi-hard coded monotonous tasks to save users time and effort, the problem is, occasionally and unexpectedly "Display Messages" will popup and the core script will continue executing instead of dismissing said message and the script "breaks". As a countermeasure I've added some code to the While loop in an effort to intervene and dismiss these display messages before the core script has a chance to do anything... however it doesn't work. I hope I didn't do too bad of a job explaining that. 
      So I think my question is: How can I temporarily "pause" the core script when these messages spontaneously appear?
      The only other solution I thought of would be to check if a display message has appeared before executing every line of code but that obviously isn't very practical.
      Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
      Thanks
       
      ;Loop to keep script running and handle display messages While 1 dismiss_display_messages() Sleep(50) WEnd ;Function to dismiss display messages Func dismiss_display_messages() If $ps.SearchText("Display Messages") Then $ps.SendKeys("[enter]", 8, 1) ;This while loop waits until the display message has disappeared to resume the core script While $ps.SearchText("Display Messages") Sleep(100) WEnd EndIf EndFunc
