#2047 closed Bug (No Bug)

ProcessExists bad return

Reported by: Jpm Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


$pid = Run(@comspec, "C:\", @SW_SHOWNORMAL, 2)
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $pid = ' & $pid & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & '    Extended code: 0x' & Hex( @extended) & @crlf) ;### Debug Console
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : ProcessExists($pid) = ' & ProcessExists($pid) & @crlf & '>Error code: ' & @error & '    Extended code: 0x' & Hex( @extended) & @crlf) ;### Debug Console

The ProcessExists() returns 0 which is wrong.
It is OK if the Stdout is not redirected

Same situation with the Beta. I am running X86 Win7 Sp1

  • Resolution set to No Bug

This is not a bug. The process really doesn't exist. It closes immediately because it does not have a STDIN stream pointing to anything useful. If you want the program to continue to run then you need to provide a STDIN handle.

It can be difficult to understand, perhaps some warning in the doc.
