ProcessClose() and Services in Windows XP

2 posts in this topic

Hello

Here is another problem - ProcessClose() works properly in Windows 98 - it closes _every_ process which I write in this command.

But if I switch to Windows XP - none of services wants to close by ProcessClose()

Try by yourself - by holding Ctrl+Alt+Del - Task manager -

in my system there are processes:

KERNEL32.DLL=0

MSGSRV32.EXE=0

SPOOL32.EXE=0

MPREXE.EXE=0

MSTASK.EXE=0

R_SERVER.EXE=0

KPF4SS.EXE=0

ASHSERV.EXE=2

PROXYPLUS.EXE=1

LEXBCES.EXE=1

RPCSS.EXE=0

LEXPPS.EXE=0

KPF4GUI.EXE=0

mmtask.tsk=0

SYSTRAYX.EXE=0

EXPLORER.EXE=0

TASKMON.EXE=0

SMAX4PNP.EXE=0

SYSTRAY.EXE=0

FPDISP5A.EXE=1

USBMONIT.EXE=1

MAILSERVER.EXE=0

TCLOCK.EXE=0

TOTALCMD.EXE=1

SERVER.EXE=1

GUILDFTPD.EXE=1

WMIEXE.EXE=0

DDHELP.EXE=0

THUNDERBIRD.EXE=3

FIREFOX.EXE=3

SYSCLOSE.EXE=0

Where the result is "1" my AU3 script tries to "close process" by ProcessClose() and (Returns 1 regardless of success/failure.)

InWin 98 it always works, but in Win XP - I noticed - _always_ fails... all the services.

How can I kill services in AutoIt3?

I still have a German DOS-like program like kill.exe and I All right. Nobody move. I got a AutoIt 3.2.0 here, and I'm not afraid to use it. :whistle:

Hmm... When I do that, I get:

:whistle:

...but all seriousness aside... If the processes represent services, did you try:

Run(@ComSpec & ' /c NET STOP "' & $ServiceName & '"', @TempDir)oÝ÷ Ù.q©Þ½éàzÛ-jÛ¬m§$jëh×6$RetCode = RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c NET STOP "' & $ServiceName & '"', @TempDir)
If $RetCode = 0 Then
     MsgBox(64, "Info", "Stopping service " & $ServiceName & " succeeded.")
Else
     MsgBox(16, "Info", "Stopping service " & $ServiceName & " failed!  ErrorLevel = " & $RetCode)
EndIf
