An office computer has a utility that should be kept running throughout the day, and sometimes colleagues accidentally quit the utility. There’s another program you’d like to keep running, but sometimes it crashes out without any warning or error. These programs need to be restarted immediately.
How to do it …
- Open up PTFB Pro’s main window by clicking on its tray icon
- Click on “New Macro…” and choose “ProgMon Macro”
- Select the program in the resulting list and hit Next
- Choose “launch the program if it’s not running”
- PTFB Pro will suggest a command line to launch the program. In most cases this will do fine, but if you need to make changes or cause the program to run under a specific account, you can.
- When you’re done, hit Finish
You may wish to tweak your new macro’s settings after you’ve created it. By default a macro like this is set to run every second or so, but if you’re happy with PTFB Pro checking for the program say every ten minutes, you can change the repeat delay in the Triggers page.
