Does anyone know how I can force Office Communicator to close before I install the patch. In SMS I have used the following switches;
Msiexec /P Communicator.msp REBOOT=FORCE REBOOTPROMPT=S /qb
This works except if Communicator is open. How can I force it to close???

I always use this script when i want to kill a process...

' ProcessKillLocal.vbs
' Sample VBScript to kill a program
' Author Guy Thomas http://computerperformance.co.uk/
' Version 2.7 - December 2005
' ------------------------ -------------------------------'
Option Explicit
Dim objWMIService, objProcess, colProcess
Dim strComputer, strProcessKill
strComputer = "."
strProcessKill = "'calc.exe'"

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
& strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colProcess = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name = " & strProcessKill )
For Each objProcess in colProcess
WSCript.Echo "Just killed process " & strProcessKill _
& " on " & strComputer

I didnt write this script, so thanks to Guy Thomas - who ever he may be.


Edit: maybe this wount work, depending on who owes the process (?)
