We have a shipping application that our ERP vendor has written that has a bug in it when it interfaces with a third party USPS module. Basically, the ERP system passes off an XML file to the third party USPS application, which runs, prints the label & then closes out. The problem is that if there is any error, it will just lock up the whole application & someone with server access has to go in & kill the EXE. So, I have two options to fix this:
1) Make a scrip that checks to see if dazzle.exe has been running for more than 30 seconds & if so, kill it. (how intensive would this be from a resource standpoint?)
2) Make a shortcut that our shipping folks can click on that would kill dazzle.exe on the server (keeping in mind that they obviously are not admins on the server, so I would have to determine a secure way to get around that)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
