Of course, but not WinGetProcess, WinGetHandle, WinGetText, etc.  Help file is your best friend...

Now that you have the basic tools, it is time for you to write some code. Enjoy !

ConsoleWrite(@AutoItPID & @CRLF)   ; Process identifier (PID) of the current script.

 

I think he wants to know which process launched the autoit script...

ps. another option is to pass the launcher PID as a command line parameter to the autoit script.

To find the parent process PID you can use this:

Exactly, i'm trying know which process launched the autoit script, and Nine, i have searched and read in the help file, this is how i did my script below.

This is my actual script, he detects the active window, get her process name, and run another script inside a determined sandboxie, im trying identify what process launched the script without needs active her window.

Local $Actwin = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]")
    Local $PidActwin = WinGetProcess($Actwin)
    Local $NamePidActwin = _Findpidname($PidActwin)


    If $NamePidActwin = "1.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:1   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "2.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:2   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "3.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:3   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "4.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:4   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "5.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:5   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "6.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:6   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "7.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:7   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "8.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:8   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "9.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:9   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "10.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:10   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "11.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:11   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "12.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:12   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)

    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "15.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:15   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf

    If $NamePidActwin = "16.exe" Then
    Local $client= "/box:16   %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf



    ;MsgBox(0, '', $NamePidActwin)


   Func _Findpidname($Pid)
       Local $Processlist = ProcessList()
       For $i = 1 To $Processlist[0][0]
           If $Processlist[$i][1] = $Pid Then Return $Processlist[$i][0]
       Next
   EndFunc   ;==>_Findpidname

@jchd I launched your script it pop up a window with all process, im a bit lost what next step?

you could simplify your code by doing this (untested) but you get the idea :

Local $box = Number(StringRegExp($NamePidActwin,"(\d+).",$STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH)[0])
Local $client= "/box:" & $box & " %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Scripts\job.exe"
RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" ' & $client, "", @SW_HIDE)

Have a look at _WinAPI_GetParentProcess and _ProcessGetName.  The script will need to be compiled for it to work correctly.  

#include <Process.au3>
#include <WinAPIProc.au3>

Global $iScriptParentPID = _WinAPI_GetParentProcess(@AutoItPID)
Global $sParentProcessName = _ProcessGetName($iScriptParentPID)
MsgBox(0, "Process Name", $sParentProcessName) ;For testing.
