@19dman73,

This is for sure not enough information to understand your issue!
Please try explaining it with more details.

When I run the script seen below, it does not close the window. It waits for me to close it manually then finishes the script with no problem.

I don't think it is stopping at the WinClose command. It seems like it is ignoring, or skipping the command.

Didn't the Window title of notepad change after you send() the text, so shouldn't winclose() reflex that change?

The window title doesn't change for me. The script works so I don't see a problem.

Maybe there is some problem because of a different language - my PC is Windows 10 and the language is English (UK).

I'd probably do it more like this

; Run Notepad.
Local $iPID = Run("notepad.exe", "", @SW_SHOWNORMAL)

; Wait 10 seconds for the Notepad window to appear.
$hWnd = _GetHwndFromPID($iPID, 10)

ControlSend($hWnd, "", "", "This is some text")
sleep(1000)
; Close the Notepad process using the PID returned by Run.
ProcessClose($iPID)

Func _GetHwndFromPID($PID, $iTimeout_secs) ;;https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/86680-pid-window-handle-hwnd-conversion/
    $iTimeout_secs = $iTimeout_secs * 100
    local $hWnd = 0
    local $stPID = DllStructCreate("int")
    Do
        $winlist2 = WinList()
        For $i = 1 To $winlist2[0][0]
            If $winlist2[$i][0] <> "" Then
                DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "GetWindowThreadProcessId", "hwnd", $winlist2[$i][1], "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($stPID))
                If DllStructGetData($stPID, 1) = $PID Then
                    $hWnd = $winlist2[$i][1]
                    ExitLoop
                EndIf
            EndIf
        Next
        Sleep(100)
        $iTimeout_secs -= 100
    Until $hWnd <> 0 Or $iTimeout_secs <= 0
    Return $hWnd
EndFunc

I had the same issue, just trying to follow the 'Simple Notepad Automation' tutorial in AutoIt Help. I think Jos' answer is the solution. After typing something in notepad the title changes from "Untitled - Notepad" to "*Untitled - Notepad" (the '*' indicates you have unsaved changes). So you need to change the WinClose command to:

WinClose("*Untitled - Notepad")

And then it works.

The AutoIt Help should probably be updated to reflect this?
