Kill_Process()

The Kill_Process() function kills all running processes matching the specified filename.

Syntax

Kill_Process(filename)

Arguments

Argument Required Description
filename Yes The filename of the process(es) you want to kill. If filename contains a backslash character ( \ ) then it is expected to be a full absolute path\filename (e.g. c:\windows\notepad.exe). Any script environment variables found in filename will be replaced by their actual values when the script is executed.


Examples

Kill_Process(notepad.exe)

This kills any running process who's path-less filename is “notepad.exe”

Kill_Process(c:\windows\notepad.exe)

This kills any running process who's absolute full path\filename is “c:\windows\notepad.exe”

Kill_Process(%dbpath%\Joy2Key\JoyToKey.exe)

This kills the running process JoyToKey.exe if it was started from “%dbpath%\Joy2Key\”

Remarks

  • Use this function with care: It will immediately and relentlessly TERMINATE all matching running processes, so be careful what you pass this function as an argument!
  • This function is Windows XP/Vista/7 only. It does not support 9x. It also has not been tested on 64-bit versions.
