I just had an idea, but not sure if it is possible, or whether it is already done. The problem i have is I keep forgetting i have programs running on my USB before i exit, as i'm sure most of you do. I know there has been a earlier post regarding an automated .bat file to kill the running processes, however i thought this maybe an alternative.
The program is run on startup (code name "Still Running" ), from a launcher, maybe on PStart, then any apps which are run from the USB drive (or run from PStart) is added to a text file or alike list. If a app is closed then it is removed from the list. Then on exit of the launcher, a list comes up with a window stating any apps that are still running. Esspecially useful for apps in the system tray, or on desktop, such as Rainlender.
The app may even have the option of a kill function for the running apps.
I can see it working in theory, by making sure all apps are run from a launcher, and everytime the launcher is run, it adds the app to the list. And everytime the program is closed, it removes the app from the list.
I'd love to develop this concept, but my programing is very (i mean very) limited to none.
Whats everyones thoughts about this? is it even possible?
