Subject: incompatibility with Russian Windows XP
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 537b
tasklist on Russian Windows XP requires "ID процесса" instead of PID. Windows 7 does not have this problem. It is explained here in Russian (cannot find information in English): http://scriptcoding.ru/2013/08/12/komandnaya-stroka-processy/ http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/ru-RU/20e852cd-0f0e-4fa7-b8e9-0b2f4d2c53c0/-taskkillexe-tasklistexe-windows-xp-sp3?forum=xpru Note: I tried fixing this while investigating if it will fix random hangings on perl 5.10.1. It did not help. -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net

OK, so I have some questions: - how do I detect a Russian Windows XP? - how would the tasklist running code would need to be changed for that case? I suppose the follow-up questions are: - should I expect the same kind of thing for other localized Windows XP? (most probably) - if so, is there a way to work out if the given pid is still running without having to parse localized output? I'd be glad if you had the answers to some those questions. -- BooK
