    Alright Thank you sir, seems like it would be a good option and would use less CPU cycles.
    Currently I see ProcessAlive-0.6.exe using about 10% in the task-manager constantly.

    So if you can add an option to check from 1-10 minutes that would be great!

    Old Location of ProcesAlive C:\
    Current Location C:\xampp\apache

    I have noticed when ProcessAlive tries to restart some programs I get an error saying
    “C++ Debug Insertion Failed cpp”

    I am able to clear this error by moving ProcessAlive into the directory of the program that crashed.
    After that ProcessAlive is able to restart the crashed program with no error related problems.

    Any luck with this yet?

    I’ve made some progress with the delay feature. I’ve added a dialog that’s accessible from the Taskbar context menu, which allows the delay to be set while ProcessAlive is monitoring processes.

    The only thing left to do is make the delay setting persistent by saving it in process_list.ini. That way it won’t need to be manually set each time you start the program.

    I’ve also addressed some of the memory usage flaws in the design. That should reduce the number of CPU cycles needed on each check.

    That is exactly what I was looking for!
    Your doing a great job!

    Hello Shane

    I am very excited about your new changes.
    Especially “reduce the number of CPU cycles needed on each check.”
    When will this be updated or released?

    I’ve just released ProcessAlive 0.7, which is available in the first post of this thread.

    Changes include the new restart delay feature and improved performance. You can read the release announcement post at my personal blog.

    This is just the program I’ve been looking for. Unfortunatly, it doesn’t work for me. No matter what .exe I browse to, I always get “Only executible files are supported.”

    Am I missing something?

    Can’t reproduce. Try the old version 0.6 (which I know works fine) and see if that resolves the issue. If it does, please reply back so I can identify the bug in the latest version.
