Close a program using the window's caption.

Post by Tatone69 »

Regards, sorry me for my bad english.
I was able to use the Close a program option using the window's caption.
Can this option be used in this scenario?
On a PC with Windows 10 that I use as a Server, I installed Cobian to make copies.
On a PC with Windows 10 that I use as a Client I start a program, installed on this PC and which connects to the Server to read data.
Can I close the program open on the Client from the Server using Cobian and the Close a program option using the window's caption?
A user connects to the Server via Remote Desktop Connection.
Can I close the open program remotely from the Server using Cobian and the Close a program option using the window's caption?
I think it is not possible, I ask you for confirmation.
:D
The only solution that comes to mind is to install Cobian on the other PCs. Use the Dummy backup type, set the program to close a few seconds before the start of the backup set on the Server.
Thanks.

This option will only work locally. It won't close a window that is present on some other machine.
