Using System.Diagnostics.Process.Kill process

Post by Obessrour » Fri Nov 07, 2014 3:09 pm

Hi,

I'm testing a desktop application using RS 5.2

I'm trying to kill some process after closing the application and i found some trouble there.

The error message show that i don't have enough privilege to execute the System.Diagnostics.Process.Kill() Sub, knowing that I'm using the administrator user of the Operating system.
Do I need some specified configuration for Ranorex ?

her is the Sud :


Public Sub killProcess()

For Each prog As Process In Process.GetProcesses
If prog.ProcessName = "processName" Then
prog.Kill()
prog.WaitForExit()
Report.Info("Killing the '" &prog.ProcessName & "' Process ")
End If
Next
End Sub


Regards,

Hello Obessrour,

It seems like you don't have the necessary permission to “kill” the process. Please ensure that you are running your test/script with elevated rights. Even if you are running your script with Admin rights you won’t be able to kill “system critical” processes. You don’t need a special configuration of Ranorex in order to use the System.Diagnostics.Process.Kill()-method.

Regards,
Robert

Hi Robert,


Thanks for your Response :)

Could you please clarify what did you mean by " Please ensure that you are running your test/script with elevated rights." ?

Elevated rights = Administrator type account. They are the only type of accounts that can end a process they don't own. You should be using an account with Administrator privileges to run tests.
Shortcuts usually aren't...
