Get Process ID of the current autoit script

3 posts in this topic

I am writing a script that I need to make sure there is only one copy running at any time. So, at the starting, I want to close all the process with same name but itself.

Is there any way to get the process id of the current process?

I don't see any Macro for current process ID.

Thanks!

Look at _Singleton() in stead for making sure the script is run only once...

Agreeing with Jdeb, _SingleTon() is the way to go... but ... To answer your question specifically @AutoItPID ... but PID's are unique per process running, even if there are multiples of the same executable, each will have it's own Process Identification number.

Edit:

Posted solution in the WRONG thread :)

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
