Trying to integrate the google closure compiler in a batch job of mine and having difficulty getting it to work.Using command prompt I can enter the following command and get my scripts compiled. (The command is a self explanatory example)
Is it possible to use system.diagnostics.process.start("Process.exe")But the process would not be seen by the user? For example, I want to play an audio in the background using windows media player, the audio will play but wmp won't be visible. Is it possible?
I am fairly new to VB.NET (but have vast professional experience with several other languages) and am completely new to these forums (so please don't burn me if I posted in the wrong place). I have run into a rather odd quirk with System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses. I have a sample application (source posted below) that checks all running processes every second for changes (created and destroyed) and tells the user what has changed, if anything, in the last second. The sample runs for anywhere between 29-72 seconds before issuing an array out of bounds error. It appears that the Windows system processes, SearchProtocolHost.exe and SearchFilterHost.exe explicitly, disappear from the list causing my application to throw the aforementioned exception. Specifically the exception I am receiving is as follows:
Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.I have noted in comments where the exception is thrown in the code below. If any of you would be willing to try this sample on your PC's or could suggest potential issues with my sample that could cause this problem
My sample code: Imports System Imports System.Diagnostics
I am tring to build network toolkit for my very computer illiterate techs. What I am trying to accomplish is to embed a command prompt of sorts in a form. I have been sucessful to a point. Here are my main two problems.
1: I cannot read line by line as the output of the process is generated. Rrather I have to wait untill its complete, this is ok for "IPConfig and Maybe "Ping". But for longer diag tests this would take too long and it would look like the app has crashed. So I need to figure out how to redirect the output of the process to my text control.
2: I would like to have the ability to redirect keyboard input to the process. For telnet as an example. I would capture all keyboard commands while my text control has focus and send them to the process and with the problem solved I should be able to establish 2-way IO with the process. Is there a way to do this or am I barking up the wrong tree.
Dim ItemProcess() As Process = Process.GetProcessesByName("vlc") If Not ItemProcess Is Nothing Then For Each SubProcess As Process In ItemProcess[code]....
Now I have created two sub in the first sub I started a process using process.start(preview.mp3)in the second sub I killed this process using the above code but instead of passing the mp3 file I am using the vlc.exe which is actually processing the fileFor this I have to manually check the task manager and get the process name.So my point is ,is there any way i can write a code that automatically the corresponding exe file that is using it.
I'm having a problem. I have researched this for over a week and have not found what I need. I find a lot of great suggestions but none of them work for me.My code and program works 100% if you put a valid program, process or file name in the box but if you don't, it crashes. Also if the program is not registered or in a known path it will crash.
I've tried My.Computer.FileSystem.FileExists(txtProcessName.Text) and System.IO.File.Exists(txtProcessName.Text)
But every variation I try thinks that none of the files exist.I don't want to hard code any of the paths or file names because I want this to be dynamic. I also want it to be a one file program. I know eventually I will need to get into multiple files but I like basing all my programs on a file that can be copied and pasted to any computer and ran without problems.
NOTE: This is a multi-function program. Not only does it start programs but it also terminates them, looks the process up on the web to see if it's spyware, adware or a valid program and it also is a Task manager.
I have an windows application from where i start another EXE by using the system.diagnostics.process.
I do as follows: private myExe as System.Diagnostics.Process myExe = New System.Diagnostics.Process() myExe.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = "...my path ..." myExe.StartInfo.FileName = "...my exe..." myExe.Start()
I'm using System.Diagnostics.Process.Start to open a file using a string stored in a SQL datatable. It works absolutely fine as long as there is an application on the local machine associated with the file type. If there isn't an association, what happens is the "Save as" dialog box pops up. What I'd like to happen is to just bring up a message box or some other prompt that tells the user what the problem is, and to contact the helpdesk. Some users will be confused if they see a "Save as" dialog box, I think.
I have a read only file and I am using System.Diagnostics.Process to open the file.If a user tries to save the file the "Save As" dialog box opens because the file is read only. The "Save As" dialog box brings them to the directory from where the file was opened from.
I have an windows application (created using visual studio 2005) and it also is using an autocad .api. The user runs Autocad and the user enters various commands that will open forms. One of these forms, contains Windows.Forms.LinkLabels with paths to the autocad drawing files they've attatched (.dwg). When they click on the link, I need the file to open in the existing Autocad they already have open; however, the problem is that it's opening a new instance of Autocad and placing the file into it. How can I make it so it opens in the existing Autocad program already open? [Code]
I want to launch a java executable (let's call it MyApp.jar) from .Net using System.Diagnostics.Process.Start. What's the syntax in VB.Net? The command line syntax is this (if I recall it correctly - because i tried it a few days ago and it worked).
myUsername and myDomain are both strings while myPassword is a SecureString. The application works properly when execute manually, but give the following error when executed from startup (either by placing in the startup folder or by adding to the registry):
The directory name is invalid
Also, the program executes properly when the last 3 arguments are left out and the user has the necessary rights.
How do I force a restart using an specific, alternate user credentials on startup?
I have written a windows service that is meant to launch a notepad when a specific action happens. The problem i have is that even though the service launches notepad, the actual notepad it self is NOT visible. I know that it has been launced because i can see the process in the task manager. By the way the process is listed as a SYSTEM process rather than a process under my user name (i believe that is because my process is a "LocalSystem" one).
I am trying to launch a program using System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("C:Program FilesFrets on FireFretsOnFire.exe") but the program always fails - the program generates an error log - so its obviously trying to start - ive included the log text but i doubt it will be useful.
Traceback (most recent call last): File "FretsOnFire.py", line 45, in <module> File "GameEngine.pyo", line 23, in <module>
Yet it runs fine when double clicked? why i can launch it from explorer but not from my code
If I have two apps which I have written with vb 2008 for windows 6 device lets say app1 and app2. App1 is running but then needs to start app2 - then app2 needs to shut down app1 and do some updating of app1 then app2 needs to restart app1 and app2 then needs to be shutdown. I am aware of the systemdiagnostics.process classes. One thing I don't understand is how to shutdown app1 from app2 how would get that processid of app1 due to the fact that you havn't access to getproccessbyname methods.
I am trying to create an app that will perform actions on specific times (much like the Windows Task Scheduler). I am currently using Process.Start() to lunch the file (or exe) required by the task. I am initiating a process by calling a file (an .mp3) and the process starts WMP (since it is the default application), so far so good. Now I wan't to kill that process. I know that it is normal behavior for the Process.Start(string, string) to return nothing (null in C#) in this case. So I am asking how can i close WMP when I called it through Process.Start(string, string)??
We have several programs that run during off hours and I want to write a program to monitor them. I have defined a list of priority programs and have written code to verify that they are running using 'Dim instance As Process'. The problem is that I can't figure out how to determine if the program has a pop-up error window like "unhandled exception" or similar window. The instance.responding still shows 'true'. How can I identify a process that is executing but has an error?
I'm trying to develop a windows application where i can get connected to remote server and look for process state going in remote server.We have many remote servers where automatic installation of software going on. We have an xml file(installstatus.xml) where it tells us at what stage the installation is (Example : Inprogress , Completed, Failed.)
So our aim is to develop a windows application where i can get connected to that servers and look for their installation status(may be we can use installstatus.xml to look for installation status). Every time i connect to a server, the server information should get stored in XML file(i want to create a xml file where all the servers list i connect to should get stored)
The UI at left side should will have list of servers i can connect to. When i get connected to server, at right side of UI, i want to display the status of installation (In progress, failed , completed).
I want to check whether a process running in remote computer or not and if it is running, kill it.I am using following code but, it gives error "Couldn't connect to remote machine". Do I need to do any security settings in the remote pc where I am connecting?
For Each myObj As Process In System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses("192.168.0.138") If myObj.ProcessName.Equals("HomeAlarm System.exe") Then myObj.Kill() End If Next
I am writing a program that looks for a particular exe running on the stations on the same workgroup, if it finds it then it will kill it. I know how to look for running processes on the local pc but can not figure out how to do it on a remote pc. I am able shell("TASKKILL /S computername /F /IM exe") which works, however I do not have error logging. If there is an error the application just hangs.
I have created an aplication that opens pdf files for different GPRS settings of various phones. These pdf files are stored on a remote computer(central machine). I am having problems using the process.start . This is the code that i am using for my search button:
Dim process as new process
process.start(("\\192.168.2.78\C:\Documents and Settings\phamanda\My Documents\Gprs\Benq\") & ComboBox5.Text & ".pdf")
copy a file to a remote target where UNC connections TO the target might not be possible.However UNC connections FROM the target and BACK to the server will always be possible. So the plan was to use WMI to start a remote command shell (cmd) and use the copy command to grab the file. But this doesn't work. The following command works fine when executed manually from the command line of the target:
In VBScript, to create a new process on a remote machine, you could use this
I would like to do the same thing in .net using WMI, and I tried to do this on my own, but my code is not working properly. If I specify my logon credentials, the process will execute on the remote machine and the code works fine, but I want the program to send the WMI query by using impersonation. I believed this was supposed to send the user credentials of the user using the program to the remote WMI provider on the remote machine. Here is the code I am using:
This kicks off the process and my code continues to run, but I need a way of monitoring that process and not doing anything else until it finishes. Is there a simple solution? I'm hoping there's something similar to Process.WaitForExit like there is when creating a local process.
I need to check if the explorer.exe process is running on a remote computer to verify that there is a user logged on the computer. I Also want to get the Process Owner of the explorer.exe process to check which user is logged on. I have found some VBscript examples online, but i can't seem to get them to work. If anyone knows of a better way of checking if and what user is logged on to a computer, please give me a reply also. I have tried System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses, but i can't seem to get the owner of the process, maybe WMI will do the trick ?
I am using vb.net and trying to use the netapi32.dll to enumerate all the process on a remote server. I have used NeServerEnum initially to allocate all of the available servers but have yet to get the NetFileEnum to work correctly. I have used 'Nothing' for the server name and it won't recognize the process on the local machine. If I try to select a server it returns '1113'. This code from what I have found means either 'the file is already open' which means little to me or ERROR_NO_UNICODE_TRANSLATION, just from what research I have collected on the number. The following is my code.
OK, I was talking to someone at work and he came up with this idea that I should make a program that notifies me if a certain process is running.
There is a process on another PC that I want to check if it is running or not because due to extreme memory usage issues of the program, we only run one instance of it at a time.
What I want to do is make a program so that I can know if that process is running without having to get up and check. But I'm not sure where to start exactly.
My friend said maybe use the WMI. With the WMI will I need a host/client program, the host detecting status of the process on the other machine which sends a message to the client program on my PC telling me if it is running or not.
I've never done something like this before so all I'm asking for is some direction into what technologies I need to be using and maybe some guides on how to go about this as I have no clue where to start.
I am looking for a bit of inspiration here, a client has requested me to build a simple remote process monitoring application with capability for smtp notification, when monitored processes go down or come back on-line. Can anyone point me in the direction of some sample code to get me started. I have briefly looked at .net remoting as a potential development path, from my understanding of how this works, the remoting architecture would require both a client and remote server component, (though I am not a 100% sure on this one), however if this is the case, then it will not fit the bill, as one of the fundamental requirements is that no additional software can be deployed on the servers which are to be monitored
I want my vb.net dll to get the data sent from c++ project(exe).Can any body help on in what form this void pointer can be sent via pipe. The void pointer corresponds to enums or structures. I have to get this structures/enums on the vb.net dll end. I have mentioned about using pipe. My question is as what type the pointed to data can be send over the pipe so that I can easily handle the received data at the vb.net dll end.
How to get full path of current directory of process from where process starts Like if i use my software to start somefile then I want my software to know where she started it from ( files path) What I mean is the file I opend using my softwares location.
