Determine running environment.

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Say I have a script which had been compiled and resides on my local PC.

Is there a way to determine if it the user who runs it uses a "double-click" and runs it from the GUI or he opened a cmd and ran it from there?

TIA,

Yargo

Search in help file about $CmdLine. IF $CmdLine[0] > 0 then script was started from cmd. Edited by Andreik

Check the parent process, if it doesn't have one... it was started without any assistance from another application.

I've written a function to get the parent process, look for _ProcessGetParent().


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.
