VBScript to close program

Hi all,

I need to run a vbscript to close an application that I have running. I am planning on calling this vbscript from a scheduled task.
For some reason the taskkill wouldn't work for me in a batch file and so I'm looking now at vbscript as a solution. I am using Wndows 2008 R2.

Thanks in advance for your help.

try this:

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objWmi = GetObject("winmgmts:")


strWmiq = "select * from Win32_Process where name='iexplorer.exe'"
Set objQResult = objWmi.Execquery(strWmiq)


For Each objProcess In objQResult
intRet = objProcess.Terminate(1)
Next 

Open in new window


I haven't tried it myself
