Kill Process Action
The Kill Process action can be used to kill a Windows process, given its process ID or a Windows executable filename.
Computer name: Remote computer to kill the process on (optional, uses local computer if blank).
Process ID or executable filename: The process ID (base 10) or executable filename (i.e., Notepad.exe) of the process to kill. Note: [Builder.ProcessID] can be used to kill the current build process.
Use wildcard search: If unchecked, the executable filename must match exactly (non-case-sensitive). If checked, when searching on an executable filename, wildcards can be used for matching:
[[ ]] Any one character within the specified range ([[a=f]]) or set ([[aef]]).
^ Any one character not within the range ([[^a=f]]) or set ([[^aef]]).
%% Any string of 0 (zero) or more characters (%%Win%%).
_ Any one character. A literal underscore must be escaped by placing inside brackets ([[_]]).
When the step completes, the following temporary macros are created or updated:
KILLPROCESS_COUNT = The number of processes that were terminated
