create NOT RESPONDING situation for testing

Recommended Posts

punisa

Good morning (CET)!

I'm configuring a PC for public display only, it will run Media Player Classic in Fullscreen. As I won't be around once it gets installed, I need to make sure it runs fine.

I found this code which I recall did work:

If _NotResponding("Media Player", "", 1) Then
Else    
EndIf


Func _NotResponding($title, $text, $closeIfHung = 0)
    $hWnd = WinGetHandle($title, $text)
    If $hWnd == "" Then

     
    EndIf
    $retArr = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "IsHungAppWindow", "hwnd", $hWnd)
    If @error == 0 Then
        If $retArr[0] == 1 Then
            If $closeIfHung Then
                ProcessClose(WinGetProcess($title, $text))
            EndIf
            Return 1
        EndIf
    Else
        Return 0
    EndIf
EndFunc

But how do I test it ? :o

Obviously I need to make MPC non responsive first, any trick how would I do that? I tried some shady stuff, like loading false files, but MPC is one brave piece of freeware it is :D

Anyways, all suggestions are welcome :)

You might be able to suspend it's process. It has been discussed on this forum, so try the search.

"suspend process" is the magic word ! Thanks : ) I was searching high and low, but didn't have a clue what to type in.

You want to break windows media player? Hmmm usually it's not to much of a problem to break anything Microsoft makes :)
