When you use screen you need to detach with CTRL+A+D before you exit ssh. Alternatively, if you want to run a process directly with screen you can use screen -dmSL [session name] [commands] -d starts a screen session and immediately detaches from it -m forces creating a new screen session -S lets you give the session a name -L turns on logging to ~/...

What is Msfeedssync.exe: It is the Microsoft Feeds Synchronization task found on PCs with Internet Explorer and which automatic RSS Feeds synchronization turned ON. This task starts up at the intervals specified in Internet Explorer and checks for updates to your RSS feeds. Once it has updated your RSS feeds, it terminates. How to disable it: Control ...

I also had problems getting MSYS2, MinGW32 and MinGW64 shells (v2016-12-07) to work in ConEmu v161206. The only (half-portable) working solution I've found is the following. Create a new task with the name {Shells::mingw-64} and the following commands in ConEmu for the MinGW64 shell: set MSYSTEM=MINGW64 & set MSYSCON=conemu64.exe & "%ConEmuDir%\..\...

What to do is actually pretty simple, once you peel all the layers away. This works well as an invocation (make sure to modify it to your specific MSYS2 install location): set CHERE_INVOKING=1 & set MSYSTEM=MINGW64 & "c:\msys64\usr\bin\bash.exe" --login -i I would personally recommend setting the shell to inherit your PATH: set CHERE_INVOKING=1 &...

This works well too: taskkill /IM "w3wp.exe" /F /FI "STATUS eq RUNNING"

Use tmux. I'm not even sure if screen is even still under active development. It's kind of a preference thing, but as someone who uses tmux, I can testify that it set up in about 5 minutes, and worked perfectly. On a Debian-based system (on the remote machine): sudo apt-get install tmux then enter tmux to enter, run whatever process you need, and hit ...

The process is almost certainly already dead, i.e. it is no longer executing any code. However, the bookkeeping about it doesn't go away until every handle to it and each of its threads is closed. You might have another program holding such a handle open (antivirus programs are a likely culprit), or it might have made a request before its death to a kernel-...

The general answer is: You can't, not accurately. Assuming you're asking about RAM (physical memory) and not virtual - Windows publishes two relevant counters for each process, the total working set and the private (to the process) working set. (PerfMon will show you these.) Task Manager shows the "private" and "shared" (added together these would give the ...

Or, this will just return an info message if not found: taskkill /f /im w3wp.exe /fi "memusage gt 2" Info from: here

You can set triggers for tasks, as opposed to running on a schedule. Start Task Scheduler from the start Menu Select the Task Scheduler Library in the left nav pane Select Action > Create Task... (not Create Basic Task...) from the menu bar In the new Create Task window, select the Triggers tab Click on the New... button In the "Begin the task:" drop down, ...

I don't know how to do this in general, but to measure total memory usage of Chrome you can write about://memory to address bar. The Summary section shows total memory usage of all Chrome processes.

Task Scheduler - run task if it isn't running You can use a batch script similar to the below and use Tasklist and FindStr to check whether or not the EXE name of SpeedFan is running in memory. With the below logic it'll Start the EXE if is not found running in memory. Batch Script Example Be sure to replace the SpeedFan.exe value with the actual name of ...

The taskbar font size can be changed by changing the font size of the Active Title Bar setting in the Windows Color and Appearance window. That window is reachable via Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization -> Window color -> Advanced appearance settings. But there is a gotcha : it works in the Classic theme, but not in Aero. ...

Both tasks are probably not the culprit, as they do not run at scheduled times. You can verify it by disabling both and reboot. With this disabled your machine runs without following features (AFAICS): MsCtfMonitor: No keyboard language switcher ("Gebietsschemaleiste" en sp?), no extended languages (like Chinese), probably touchscreen keyboards are ...

I don't have a concrete answer for you, but I can tell you where I would start. I warn you that this line of inquiry is not for the faint of heart. The style information for the aero theme under Windows 7 is located in a resource-laden DLL called shellstyle.dll, in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor. The file's resources can be viewed with a ...

At last, I solved it using screen: In screen mode, detach it using CtrlAD. Then you can close the SSH window.

Is there a way to bulk-add a list of tasks to Outlook? You can import tasks from a .csv file. I would suggest the following: Export your current tasks as a .csv file so you know how the task fields are formatted as csv. "File" > "Open/Export" > select "Import/Export" In the "Import and Export Wizard" window, select "Export to a file", then click on "...

nohup use: The first of the commands below starts the program abcd in the background in such a way that the subsequent logout does not stop it. $ nohup abcd & $ exit

This is a one line solution. It will run taskkill only if the process is really running otherwise it will just info that it is not running. tasklist | find /i "w3wp.exe" && taskkill /im w3wp.exe /F || echo process "w3wp.exe" not running. This is the output in case the process was running: w3wp.exe 1960 Services 0 ...

Somebody has already asked pretty much the same question at How can I determine if an application is not responding? (determining which processes are not responding is the hard part, killing them is quite easy). I've quoted a relevant answer here: The Not Responding state is not a process state, but rather the process has stopped communicating with the ...

A little late to the party but I've written a terminal application that will do this for you. It bypasses the need for UI scripting the Activity Monitor and instead uses a spindump report to determine the unresponsive processes and auto-terminates them for you. https://github.com/cold-logic/killunresponsive

Found it. If you want to open the image file using windows photo viewer (Ive done this in win7 actually, should work on 8 too) when you are in task scheduler, hit Create a basic task and give a name and time and in the Action part hit Start a program and in the next step in the Program/script part put this: %SystemRoot%\System32\rundll32.exe and in the Add ...

Look inside msys2_shell.bat to get the answer. This batch runs mintty instead of bash shell. Useless. Change third line to full path to bash.exe -l -i. how can I set this configuration as the default one when I start ConEmu There is "Startup" settings page in ConEmu, isn't it?

Computers are good at repetitive tasks. If they don't overheat in the first few minutes, they never will whilst doing that task. I've had computers doing sets of the same repetitive tasks for 10 years; only rebooting for OS updates etc every month or three, the rest of the time working, 24/7/365. Note: If you're going to leave a computer running ...

You can't do this with the at command. It only allows for either EVERY Sunday or NEXT Sunday. You'll need to use Scheduled Tasks instead. Either with the gui or via cli. I'll steal this one from Hyppy as an example: SCHTASKS /Create /SC MONTHLY /MO first /D SUN /TN GameTime /TR c:\windows\system32\frecell

I found out the answer. First I pinned Visual Studio to Task bar. Second, dragged the solution file and dropped on the exe on the Task bar (Pinned to Visual Studio) After the second step, I was able to see the programs to the right side (tasks) of the Visual Studio short cut in the start menu.

Sorry mate, that is not possible. If you restart windows all information in RAM is lost. To continue a task is only possible in suspend to disk modes, where information is stored on the hdd/ssd and loaded back to memory on resume, with all programms running. The program you are refering to does only pause the execution of the task. All its memory ...

Some people will suggest KillNotes to you, but this can cause corruption. The better way is to go into the notes folder and run the following command. nsd -kill It should remove all processes that will stop it rebooting. Alternatively on the start menu you can use the following. Lotus Applications -> Support -> Collect Lotus Notes diagnostic data ...
