Abort "Hanging" Actions

2 posts in this topic

When using AutoIt directly I can abort paused actions (Such as WinWaitActive when Window is not coming) by clicking on the tray-icon.

But now I've started using AutoItX3 with VBS.

How can I stop/break/abort ALL running actions, when a window is not coming correctly.

(e.g. a "save"-command crashes with "file already exists"-error.)

Hello MatheFreak,

I do not know a way with stop/break/abort or something else. So far I know, if you start AutoIt as a part of VisualBasicScript (VBS), you must kill the associated parent process of wscript.exe. It is not possible to do another partial action, because AutoItX3.dll is a part of the parent process. You can analyze the processes with Sysinternals Process Explorer.

Cheers

Stefan
