I finally gave a look into DLLs and want to make use of them in Autoit.
I know that a DLL is basically a library with some code, that can be used by several other programs at the same time to get some advantages.
Yet, I need to know how they are properly used. Also it might be helpful to know what DLL is doing what task. Can you provide some resources?
[Solved] How do I launch an app as it's own parent process?
I have 3 processes that I am trying to work with:
The ControlCenter (Cannot Edit) and handles the other 2 processes. The ControlCenter will launch and close processes as requested by the user.
The Launcher (Can Edit) and launches an installer.
The Script (Can Edit) and automates the above installer.
My issue is, ControlCenter will terminate the Launcher and all of it's child processes. I need the script to continue running after the Launcher has been closed by the ControlCenter. How do I get the Launcher to launch the script in it's own parent process so it does not get terminated when the ControlCenter terminates the launcher and all child processes?
Sorry if this is confusing. I am terrible at explaining things. Autism can be a pain to deal with sometimes.
Set application in idle state
I have a script that runs for about 20 seconds.
If Outlook.exe is not already open, and I open it while the script is running, I want Outlook to wait until the script is done, and then open.
Is it possible to set an application in some sort of idle state until the script is done? I want to avoid it from just closing Outlook, and open it again.
End process if not after 5:00
All I'm after is a script that will continuously check the time, and if a process starts before 5:00, then it will be killed straight away, if its after 5:00, then it is allowed to run. But on weekends the process is allowed to run at any time.
A script that I could just modify to my needs would be nice, but if someone could point me to the Help File section that will do what I need, that would be better.
Load Cell DLL Help
Not sure if this is the right area: I would like to create a small sub that runs a timer and uses a dll to query a USB load cell. I have had a general look at some of the resources on the forum...there is a lot...but was wondering whether someone could give me a bump in the right direction; I have linked the docs that came with the dll (5mg). Thanks for any advice.
