Killing Windows process with VBScript and WMI

Posted by on September 25, 2014

For some info about VBScript and WMI chek the previous post.

So lets kill some specific windows process filtering their params.

In this case i want to kill the Domain2 thats running on Glassfish.

So i will run it like this:

KillProcess "java.exe", "domain2"

Why i want to do this? Well there is a time when i really want to stop glassfish services but they ignore me xD and raise some timeout :(

Here is the KillProcess snippet:

Sub KillProcess(Process,CommandLine)
    strComputer = "."
    Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts://./root/cimv2")

    Set colProcessbyName = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name like '%" & Process & "%' and CommandLine LIKE '%"& CommandLine &"%'")

    If (NOT IsNull(colProcessbyName)) AND ( getCount(colProcessbyName) > 0) Then
      For Each objProcess in colProcessbyName
          strProcessID = objProcess.ProcessId
          Wscript.Echo "Process ID: " & strProcessID
    End If

    Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process where ProcessId =" & strProcessID)
    If (NOT IsNull(colProcessList)) AND (getCount(colProcessList) > 0) Then
      For Each objProcess in colProcessList
    End If

End Sub

That’s all folks
