PostPosted: Fri Jul 18, 2003 3:09 pm    Post subject: Kill Tasks Reply with quote

I have uploaded the source of a DSU to kill all running instances of a specified file (a function I have been waiting for for a long time Wink ).

Download: http://www.vdsworld.com/index.php?page=download&fileid=293

-OR-

If you prefer, here is the source to the script and a short demo.
Code:
#   Filename:    kill.dsc
#   Version:     1.7.21.1
#   Author:      Jim Bob Pipes
#   Copyright:    2003 Jim Bob Pipes
#   Purpose:     To kill all running tasks matching specified file path
#   
#   Functions:   kill
#   Commands:   
#   Includes:   
#   Lists:       6, 7
#   Variables:   %i, %%ProcName, %%ProcID, %%returncode

#DEFINE FUNCTION,KILL

:KILL
# create a list of all running tasks including filenames and process ID's
LIST CREATE,6
LIST CREATE,7
LIST TASKLIST,6,NI
%i = 0
%%returncode = 0
WHILE @GREATER(@COUNT(6),%i)
  LIST SEEK,6,%i
  PARSE "%%ProcName;%%ProcID",@ITEM(6)
  # if the process name matches the file name and extension passed to the function, check
  # the full file path of the process
  IF @EQUAL(%%ProcName,@NAME(%1).@EXT(%1))
    LIST MODULES,7,%%ProcID
    # if the full file path of the process matches the full file path passed to the function, kill it
    IF @EQUAL(@ITEM(7,0),%1)
      KILLTASK %%ProcID
      # increment the valuse of %%returncode each time a running task is killed
      %%returncode = @SUCC(%%returncode)
    END
    LIST CLEAR,7
  END
  %i = @SUCC(%i)
WEND
# close the list and clear variables before leaving the function
LIST CLOSE,6
LIST CLOSE,7
%i =
%%ProcName =
%%ProcID =
EXIT %%returncode


Code:
#   Filename:    demo.dsc
#   Version:     1.7.21.1
#   Author:      Jim Bob Pipes
#   Copyright:    2003 Jim Bob Pipes

#INCLUDE kill.dsc

# specify the full file path of the processes you want to kill
%%filename = "your_full_file_path_here"
# number returned will be the number of processes killed
INFO @kill(%%filename)" instances of "%%filename" were killed."
EXIT


EDIT: 07-21-2003 - added routine to check the path of the process. Thanks Dr. Dread and FF for the help! Very Happy

Nice. Just a thought: Processes with identical names may originate from different executables, so it
might be a good idea to check whether processes with the to-be-killed name originate from the same
file path. Sometimes you'll only want to kill one of them..

I tell you this coz I had an experience killing off a process that accidentally had the same process
name as the one I really wanted to finish Wink

BTW: I don't think VDS itself can tell ya the process path, you'll probably need an API call for that.

Hey Dread!

I hear ya... I've made the same mistake before. This DSU was really just meant to be a simple "kill 'em all because you know you're killing the right process" kind of script. That would be a nice addition though. I don't have much win32 API knowledge but if anybody would like to update this DSU to include Dread's idea, please feel free to.

You don't need an API to get the process path. Wink

Try this code:

Code:
list create,1
list modules,1,explorer.exe
info @item(1,0)
list close,1
exit

Aaaaa, great! That one had escaped my attention. I'll keep it in mind for next time.
