Technical Solution


We are attempting to create a Wisescript that checks if various files from the C:\Windows directory (and its subdirectories) are in use on a 32 bit system.

When we launch the completed .EXE, nothing is returned. Normally we would expect to see a message that the file is in use or it File is not in use.
We see no message

We have tested this with the notepad.exe (located at C:\Windows\notepad.exe) and calc.exe (located at C:\Windows\calc.exe)


Wise Package Studio 8 (build
Windows 7 (32 bit)
