Kill application

Top  Previous  Next



The Kill application action attempts to kill the specified process use more brute force methods.  It first tries to kill the application via normal methods.  If that doesn't work, it tries to kill the process directly and, if that doesn't work, it tries to invoke the Windows taskkill.exe command.  Please note that using the Kill application action can result in a loss of unsaved data.  Use with care.


The Kill application action consists of the following options:


1.Process name.  Specifies the name of the process to attempt to kill.  You can paste the path in manually or use the clip0013 Browse... button to choose an executable.  You can also choose the process from the list of currently running processes.  Double-click the process or click the clip0014 Add button to populate the Process name field.  You can use the clip0015 Refresh button to refresh the list of running processes.
2.Time to wait for app to close (seconds). This is the time Splat will wait for a process to die before moving on to the next action in the profile.
3.Use window title. Specify the window's title, or partial title, in this field.  This can help greatly when attempting to kill a process.  Leave blank to disable.
