Ensuring closed files?

3 posts in this topic

Greetings,

Is there a way to write a script that will ensure a file is closed that may have been opened/accessed in another program running previous to the AutoIT script? I have an AutoIT script that runs after an instance of Streamreader running in another program...sometimes a file that is used in my AutoIT script is "left open" by the other program/Streamreader and it messes up the AutoIT script because the file cannot be accessed as it is left open...how can I avoid this? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Usually Windows will take care of closing opened files when a program finishes (gracefully). Are you opening your files in read, or read/write mode? Is anything else (such as your anti-virus software) opening the files too?

Sample code??

umm try this

While 1
        If ProcessExists("Put Process Name Here") Then
            MsgBox(0, "ProcessCheck", "The Process Still Exists")
        Else
            MsgBox(0, "ProcessCheck", "The Process Does Not Exist")
            Exit
        EndIf
    WEnd
