#210 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

File Unlocker

Reported by: Larry Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity:
Keywords: Cc:

Description

Add functionality to ProcessClose() or some related function... perhaps adding a function... that will close handles of any processes/threads that are keeping a file locked. Perhaps a flag on FileDelete that forces a file to be unlocked before deleting... But, I rather have a function just unlock and keep deleting seperate.

  • Resolution set to Rejected
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is neither trivial to implement, nor is it safe. I think you would be better off using Handle.exe from Sysinternals for this.

Replying to Valik:

The code I found seems simple enough. Unsafe I understand. I have found this functionality crucial in some software deployment and virus cleanup scenarios.
