Kill program sitting in SysTray


Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I just discovered AutoIt. It's GREAT and I think it can solve my problem:

I need to check if a particular program is loaded and sitting in the SystemTray. If it is, I need to kill (unload) it in order to install a new version of it.

I know how to close its window if one is open but closing the window will not unload it and remove its instance from the tray.

Anyone enclined to give some help to a Newbie?

PS:For info, the program has a SysTray icon right-click menu with a "Terminate" option which unloads it from memory.

Any help/pointers appreciated.

Look up the help file for processexists and processclose ?

Something like

If Processexists("notepad.exe") Then
      Processclose ("notepad.exe")
     ;Install new version 
     ;Run new version
     ;Ect
Else
      MsgBox(4096,"", "Notepad isnt running")
Endif

Hope that helps.
