The Z-Cron commands KILL, KILLWIN, KILLWIN-JOB and DESTROY can close programs in a time-controlled manner.


This command closes a process given a path to its EXE file.


With the command KILLWIN the program window with the specified window title is closed. You can specify the whole name or a part of it. All windows that fit the specified title are closed on schedule.


The command KILLWIN-JOB enhances the KILLWIN command and allows to automatically run another Z-Cron job after a window has been closed.


This command closes program windows by process ID. The process ID is assigned by the operating system. This command can be used to close exactly one specific instance of a program, if the ID is known.

Z-Cron offers a simple list of all currently open program windows to help you select which ones you want to close.

In combination with the STARTREMOTE command, these commands can also be executed on a remote computer in the local network. Z-Cron must be installed on both the target computer and the computer which issues the command.
