You really should be allowed to kil the command with


Maybe your taskkill command is run too fast? Have you tried using SLEEP? You can download sleep, and simply put it in your SYSTEM32 directory, and then run sleep after you install your program and give it about 5 seconds, then try the TASKKILL command.

It really should work as long as all it is doing is opening notepad

As for REGCLEANER, try AUTOIT. its a really simple program, and its help file will help you a lot. IT'll silently install pretty much any program you want.

All the program does is basically simulate keystrokes and mouse clicks, so the possibilities are endless!

Oke i've tryed to use sleep and autoit... but without success :}

first of all sleep doesn't work or i use it the wrong way.. i downloaded sleep and put it in my system32 folder.... i ran my setup.cmd with sleep ..... my whole script doesn't work it's giving the same problem the notepad window....

this is my script...


ECHO bezig met het installeren van Cacheman 5.50

ECHO even geduld a.u.b.

Start /wait %systemdrive%\install\cacheman\cachm550.exe /S

taskkill /IM readme.txt /F

taskkill /IM cacheman.exe /F

ECHO Installatie Compleet!

the first taskkill doesn't work the second does....

if i try to turn them around then the first and the second don't work

so it's the problem with the readme.txt...... it won't close

second of all i don't have a clue how to work with autoit.....

i don't get it..... sorry

Well for Cacheman you could probably use a large amount of the code I have in place for CachemanXP...the script is in the AutoIt thread.

if you want a simple autoit script that would probably do what you want, you could do some thing like so (please cheack help file):

Run ( "cachm550.exe /S" )

WinWait ( "readme.txt" )

WinClose ( "readme.txt" )

ProcessClose ("cacheman.exe" )

I have the same problem as you do and i will soon test this:

REG ADD %KEY%\017 /VE /D "Cacheman 5.50.30" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\017 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\Cacheman\cachm550.exe /S" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\017 /V 2 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\Cacheman\Sleep.exe /t:5 /s:1
REG ADD %KEY%\017 /V 3 /D "taskkill /IM notepad.exe /F" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\017 /V 4 /D "taskkill /IM Cacheman.exe /F" /f

in my RunOnceEx.cmd

dont know if it works yet though.

anyway i noticed that in your "script" you are trying to kill readme.txt, i wounder if that really works. Maby kill notepad.exe will work better. and then offcourse add sleep.exe just right before that.

as i said i dont know if this work yet :blushing:


EDIT: Btw is it possibe to set Cachman not to start up as default everytime Windows boots up?
