    monkeyracer, i already have tried ur suggestion.. it didn't do it on shutdown.. it might close it when exiting a skin, but that's not what i want... i want it to happen when i close RR.... RR is big daddy... daddy says everyone go to bed... then it's a nap time for everyone, no BUT..

    el,
    so, it's a known thing.... well... guess i have to wait for sonic's magic command too then.....


    thanks guys..

    Arrow Manually kill a task

    Its not a perfect sollution, but works perfectly for me. I simply wrote a small script, that I can pass the name of a task to, and it will kill it.

    To Kill Winamp for instance, I have the following line in my Exectbl.ini:

    Code:
    "KillWinamp","RunQ;$skinpath$scripts\Kill_Task.exe|winamp.exe"
    On the Exit button in my skin, I have:

    Code:
     "KillWinamp||QUIT"
    This way when I close RR, Winamp is forced to close.

    Simply change the winamp.exe to any process you want to kill and create more lines in the exectbl for each thing you want to be sure is closed, Rainlender for instnace:

    Code:
    "KillRainlender","RunQ;$skinpath$scripts\Kill_Task.exe|Rainlender.exe"
    SO now your exit button would have the following code to close both:

    Code:
     "KillRainlender||KillRainlender||QUIT"
    Attached it the zipped up .exe

    Try to have RoadRunner start the program.

    Normally any program started as a child of another program will close when the parent closes (unless Guino has down something special to start external Programs)

    I have added the lines of code, but the kill task.exe zip is a dead link.

    Sorry to resurrect the thread, but I could use this for a stubborn program. I am using a qwerty keyboard plug in for iguidance, and even though it is started by roadrunner, it does not close unless I close it in the task bar.

    Thanks.

    john, I have a question for you.

    I know you were dabbling with ShutControl for a while, and on the thread for the shutcontrol we can use the "Taskkill.exe" with some switches to kill certain programs.

    But do you know of a way to properly close down an application, using your kill_task.exe, or any other means?

    If I suspend with winamp running, on resume it loses the playlist. If I kill winamp, it loses the playlist, and reverts back to a different list with only one album. If I close winamp (with RR) and then suspend, I can have Shutcontrol resume RR (along with winamp) and everything works correctly.

    fyi - I suspend rather than hibernate since it's way quicker...

    So, how do we do this?
