Check for second startup

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Does anyone have a good idea for checking if a script isn't started for a second time while the other is still running?

I thought I could do it with ProcessExists, but obviously this is alway true for it is his own process....

Dim $Versie = ""
Dim $VersiePrcsChk = StringReplace($Versie,".","")

If ProcessExists("cqrinvuller" & $VersiePrcsChk & ".exe") Then
   MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error text")

Please help...

This is from FAQ, will this do?

14. How can I make sure only one copy of my script is run?
The easiest way is to rename the title of the hidden AutoIt window when your script first starts.  Then in the same script check for that window title existing - if it does then another copy of the script is running.

; Place at the top of your script
$g_szVersion = "My Script 1.1"
If WinExists($g_szVersion) Then Exit; It's already running
; Rest of your script goes here
