Title: Kill an Executable
Post by: LouieM on September 08, 2017, 01:30:05 am
Sometimes executables hang, or otherwise go off into the weeds.  Currently I have to open up a terminal, or Process Monitor, to kill the executable.  I can kill the build process, but I haven't found a way to kill the executable from within SlickEdit.  It would be great if SlickEdit would remember the process ID and issue a kill signal to the process, and all its children, from an icon click or menu option.

One thing you can do now is exit SlickEdit. If a process is hung in the build window, SlickEdit will prompt to kill the process. A menu option/button/ command would be useful though.

Wouldn't the "stop-build" command or Build->Stop Build accomplish this? Additionally I created a button on my toolbar that invokes "stop-build" so that I can do it with one click.

My bad.  I see they have fixed this.  My 'stop' icon now kills the process as well as the build.  I didn't check this thoroughly before posting my request.

Yep, I had the same issue and SE team fixed it, discussed in this thread:

Thanks robearto. I realized after I posted that he might have been running into the same problem you had where "stop-build" just wasn't working correctly.
