[THIN] Re: have a process still running after seamless app closes

Hmmm...am I missing something here? Of course it has to loop. The
qprocess | find /i "process" must continually run to test to see if the
first app is running or not. How else will it know to take action using
TSKILL, or whatever else you use to kill the other two processes?

 

I'm not being rude or having a go at you, I'm just looking at this
differently.

 

Cheers,

Jeremy.

Whatever works.  I wouldn't say it hammers resources, there is no loop
in the batch file and it just sits in the background minimized if you
wish.  Uses about 2 MB of memory that's all.

Hi Lan,

 

I think you are far better off using WMI to monitor for the closure of
the first app, so that it will then terminate the second, etc.

 

A similar example can be found here:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/resources/qanda/jul05/hey0
701.mspx

 

Obviously this script would need some rework to achieve what you are
looking for, but you would get it to launch the main app, and then it
just sits in the background waiting for the app to terminate, and then
terminates the other processes. Nice and tidy. The nice thing about
using this method is that it doesn't hammer the system resources,
whereas the method offered below (sorry Chris) may well do that.

 

I have used this method before, but can't find my exact script L

 

Cheers,

Jeremy.

You could run it in a batch file so your initial app runs start /wait
"your front application"

 

Your next line could then be qprocess | find /i "process" to check for a
running process.  If it doesn't find the process then run TSKILL on the
process that runs the application in the system tray and any others you
want killed.

 

We have had to do the same thing here with an application that runs in
the System tray.  

 

Chris

Joe, 

Thanks for the response on this, unfortunately neither these registry
adjustments on the server (+reboot), nor publishing the app with
launchit seems able to kill the additional exes which launch with the
app when the core app is closed.

I have simplified the publishing to just the base application exe which
launches 2 additional exe's when starting. After the core app is closed,
these two exe's continue to run in the session.

If anyone has other suggestions for directions on this I'd appreciate
it, as is it's looking like we may just have to bite the bullet and
attempt to train the user's to close out the systray EXE during log offs
. . ./sigh

Thanks, 

Lan

Hello,

 

There is a Microsoft version of this key as well that has to be set...
Here is an example of both:

 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Citrix\wfshell\TWI]

"LogoffCheckSysModules"="ReconnAct!.exe"

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal

Afternoon listies, 

We have an app run in seamless mode, which is used as a starter point to
ensure that a number of other applications can be started within the
same memory space (same server).

One of the newer applications being launched by this starter point, has
a secondary EXE process spawned that drops directly down to the system
tray. 

All is well and good, until the main starter application is closed. The
spawned EXE's for the system tray app won't close without an end user
selecting to exit them specifically. 

Have attempted the reg mods defined in -
http://support.citrix.com/article/ctx891671, but that hasn't done it for
us so far. 

I was recall some kind of third party app, "launchit" "launchthis"...or
something similar which can watch spawned processes and close them out
after the initially launched app closes. 

Not finding it in my searches, curious if anyone else is aware of a
utility which will help us close out this little bugger of an exe. 

thanks, 

Lan
