Look at ProcessList. Compare the PID to @AutoItPID and then use ProcessClose to close any other instances.

Again, I'm sure you could find some full working examples if you put some effort into searching the forums.

Hello
I apologize very much for bothering you all
But it's very important to me
I will now try to explain in detail what I want to do and please help me with this
1. I designed an audio player called easy audio player
The executable file name is easyAudioPlayer.exe
Its task is to play audio files
I have made this player the default in opening my audio files.
2 What I want is if you press an audio file if the program finds another file that is open in the same program, it will closes it and opens the file that was pressed
This is exactly what I want
please help
By typing a simple example,
Greetings to all of you and I repeat my apologies
I apologize for my weak English

You should stop apologizing about your English and instead apologize for your lack of effort in solving the issue for yourself.

You've been given pointers on how to do it. Now how about you show some code showing where you've actually tried to solve it yourself instead of repeatedly asking for someone else to write the code for you.

Please correct the error if any
Greetings
Thank you very much

 

Func check($exefile = @ScriptName, $HWND = $hGUI)
    Local $process = $exefile, $window = $HWND, $return
    Local $iPID = WinGetProcess($window)
    If @error Then Return -1
    Local $aProcessList = ProcessList($process)
    If @error Then Return -1
    For $i = 1 To $aProcessList[0][0]
        If Not $aProcessList[$i][1] = $iPID Then
            ProcessClose($aProcessList[$i][1])
        EndIf
    Next
    Return 1
EndFunc   ;==>check

Something like this?

Func check($exefile)
    Local $OwnPID = @AutoItPID
    Local $aProcessList = ProcessList($exefile)
    If @error Then Return -1
    For $i = 1 To $aProcessList[0][0]
        If Not $aProcessList[$i][1] = $OwnPID Then
            ProcessClose($aProcessList[$i][1])
        EndIf
    Next
    Return 1
EndFunc   ;==>check

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      I need to perform a subtotal in excel and I would like to automate this process using Autoit if possible like always any and all help will be greatly appreciated. 
      I can not find a good example but the two from Microsoft. Here is one of the two from msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vba/excel-vba/articles/range-subtotal-method-excel
      I do not really understand how to translate this into AutoIt, but I gave it a try and here is what I have.
      $OpenRange      = "A1:E200" $xlSum          = -4157 $Added_Array[2] = [2, 3] $OpenRange.Subtotal("B1", $xlSum, $Added_Array, True, False, True) I just need to perform a subtotal on a range based on a header called department, and then perform a sum on the results.

      How to use _Excel_RangeSort to sort my excel file by three different headers Column A1, B1, and C1 have headers on which I want to sort by. The headers on which I want to sort are department, employee type, and name.
      I still really new to AutoIt so I do not actually know how to properly start this line or lines of code, to be honest. The example code is the best I can do.
      _Excel_RangeSort($OpenWorkbook, Default, "A1:C1", "1:1", $xlDescending, Default, $xlYes, Default, $xlSortRows) I just need to sort by those three headers in that order of department, employee type, and name, plus in descending order.
       
      any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
