[Solved] For Next Loop forgetting it's current $i position (Possible memory issue)

Recommended Posts

So this is a script that reduces memory for processes stored in the ini file. The problem lies when it tries to reduce memory for steam.exe (9th on the list). It reduces it's memory, then forgets what to process next and goes straight to explorer.exe (3rd on the list). Because of this, it never reduces memory for processes after steam.exe on the ini list.

I have included my script and ini file for you to take a look at. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just an FYI, EmptyWorkingSet isn't going to help with anything. It's a bandaid used to fix poor programming, and doesn't really reduce the memory being used by a program, it just shifts it from RAM to the much slower hard drive. It will cause an impact on the programs you're using it on, and may cause problems.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
