Run/Stop a Process

You can start a Process manually by clicking on the green arrow icon "Start", or by right-clicking on the Process and choosing Run Process. The Process you want to start must be highlighted. If no Process is highlighted, the Start "startdebuggingbutton.png" and Stop "stopbutton.png" options are not available.

If you start a Process that is already running, by default you will start another Instance of that Process. If you do not wish a Process to be able to run multiple instances concurrently, you can specify that through the Concurrency Policy tab of the Process Properties Dialog for that Process. You can stop a running Process by clicking on the Stop Icon in the Processes tab, or by right-clicking on the Process and choosing Stop Process.

You can also stop one instance of a running Process by clicking on the Stop Processes link found on the Notification Popup Window, though this will close only that instance of the Process.

You can also stop one instance of a running Process by clicking on the Stop Processes link found on the Notification Popup Window, though this will close only that instance of the Process.

Finally, you can close all running Processes simultaneously by entering Ctrl+Alt+T. This HotKey is a predefined Trigger that is especially useful if WinAutomation is controlling your mouse so you can't click on anything, a "panic button," so to speak. You can change this hotkey combination in the "Options > Settings > General" tab.
