Kill application, recompile and auto start in browser

Recommended Posts



Everytime we recompile application, you must close in traybar and refresh browser page.

The tip will automatically close application and start a new page in default browser.


In Project, Options, Build Events,Pre-Build, write command:

  taskkill /F /IM program.exe /T

procedure TUniServerModule.UniGUIServerModuleCreate(Sender: TObject);
  if self.StandAloneServer then //if you need this, if not, remove it.
    ExploreWeb('http://localhost:8077'); //auto start browser

procedure ExploreWeb(page:PChar);
var Returnvalue: integer;
  ReturnValue := ShellExecute(0, 'open', page, nil, nil,SW_SHOWNORMAL);
  if ReturnValue <= 32 then
     case Returnvalue of
          0 : MessageBox(0,'Error: Out of memory','Error',0);
          ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND: MessageBox(0,'Error: File not found','Error',0);
          ERROR_PATH_NOT_FOUND: MessageBox(0,'Error: Directory not found','Error',0);
          ERROR_BAD_FORMAT    : MessageBox(0,'Error: Wrong format in EXE','Error',0);
          MessageBox(0,PChar('Error Nr: '+IntToStr(Returnvalue)+' inShellExecute'),'Error',0)


procedure TFMainForm.UniFormShow(Sender: TObject);

    //show frame/form to login only if we are not debuging...

    if  (DebugHook = 0) then

my  project name is one8077 ,the exe is one8077.exe.


Why show "[Exec Error] The command "taskkill /F /IM one8077.exe /T" exited with code 128."?



En Project Options -> Build Events -> Pre-Build Events -> Cancel on Error = False.
