End .exe file

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've a script that when run launches notepad.exe, and I've compiled it into notepadrunner.exe. The problem I've got is that when I close notepad down the notepadrunner.exe still remains running in taskmanager. Is there a command to close the .exe when I close notepad?

Thanks

From example scripts:

;waits until no instance of notepad.exe exists
ProcessWaitClose("notepad.exe")

; This will wait until this particular instance of notepad has exited
$PID = Run("notepad.exe")
ProcessWaitClose($PID)

Thanks for the prompt reply.

It isn't notepad.exe that I've got a problem with, it's the notepadrunner.exe that continues to run after closing notepad.

G'day notesbloke

The best idea when asking a question like this is to supply the source code for the script you are talking about.

Most problems are generally 'bugs' :mellow: in the code and maybe solved very quickly.

So reply with the source "IN a code block".....

Good Luck

Then recompile your Notepad executor so that it 'Exits' after Notepad was successfully opened.

Show some source! :mellow:
