ExecWait and Firefox 1.5

Hi,

looks like using ExecWait for Firefox 1.5 no longer works. It was ok with 1.0.7. I guess it must be starting up a child process and then quiting or something. Not sure of a way around this.

Bevan.

Restart it a couple times

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

How about using FindProc?

How about using this code after EXECWAIT?

Sleep 2000
FindProcDLL::FindProc "firefox.exe"
Pop $R0
StrCmp $R0 "1" 0 -3

Debating that...

I've been debating adding in an option like that. I was trying to solidfy on a time period to wait between each check, since it is possible the user could launch a local copy while the wait is going on.

As long as you relaunch a couple times, the PID is stable. And, since you wouldn't use the updater or be installing extensions while using ExecWait, it's fine.
