Launching and stopping applications

6 posts in this topic

I want 2 write an auto it.

It must:

have an user dialog that allows to:

Button to Launch about a dozen applications with a little pause between each.

Report on progress of launched applications

Button to shutdown the same applications that will not fail if an application amongst them is no longer there.

Button (password protected) to edit the list of applications to launch.

Question: Can Auto-it Shutdown an application when it has only a sys tray Icon with only an "exit" menu option?

(in other words (and no you are not stupid and i am not bush) can Auto-it shut down the application "nicely" and not with brutal force?)

thx

You should download KODA - a very good autoit gui designer

You should look at the following functions in the helpfile :

Run

I have written something like this last week to start services and applications for a sales demo laptop.

The one I wrote check to see if the services and apps are running so not to start them again, but reports on failures and success to the gui.
