Trying to create a program closing script… not working, can’t figure why

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Im new to all this scripting business, have done a little (and i mean very little) Arduino coding in the past… 

Im trying to get a windows script to close a program which is running, below is my code, it seems to run, but just doesn’t close said program… any ideas/guidance would be much appreciated. 

Func close()
 
   If ProcessExists("CashlessTest.exe") Then
   ProcessClose("CashlessTest.exe")
   EndIf
 
EndFunc

martinski,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

If that is all you have then it is not surprising that nothing happens. You need to call the function and have a loop to keep the script running until it has done its job. Something like this:

While 1

    ; Call the function
    _Close()
    ; Give the CPU a moment to breathe
    Sleep(10)
    
WEnd

Func _Close() 

    ; Check if the process exists
    If ProcessExists("CashlessTest.exe") Then
        ; Close it
        ProcessClose("CashlessTest.exe")
        ; And exit the script
        Exit
    EndIf
    
    ; If we get here than the function returns to the main loop and we try again later
    

EndFunc

I hope that makes sense - please ask questions if not.
