See If Already Running.

Recommended Posts

quielb

I want to check to see if my autoit exe is already running. Is there a way to get the PID of self?

And when I use WinGetProcess which PID will it return? The Pid of the other autoit exe or the PID of the autoit exe I just started?

I tried:

if WinGetProcess("magreader.exe") = -1 Then
   MsgBox(0,"Already Running", "The Magstripe Reader is already running use ALT-SHIFT-D to access")
   exit
EndIf

And of course it exits every time cause of course magreader.exe is running.

maybe

$g_szVersion = "My XP Cleaner"
If WinExists($g_szVersion) Then
    MouseMove(500,5)
    MsgBox(262208, "* NOTE * ", "*XPClean Menu* was already running  ", 5)
    SoundPlay ($Sound_lnk,1)
    Exit; It's already running
EndIf
AutoItWinSetTitle($g_szVersion)

thats what i use

Check out the standard udf _Singleton()

I can probably use ProcessList( "magreader.exe" ) to get all the running instances of magreader.exe but how do I get PID of self?
