Press release date: November 18, 2006
@SwIt s.r.l. has released @Kill v. 1.0, a freeware Windows utility that lets external applications and batch files close Window applications by killing their windows.
Unlike other killing utilities it works also with hidden and system windows (for example trayed applications) and you can specify only a PART of the window caption.
For example, If you've opened three Windows named "Notepad - first.txt", "Notepad - second.txt" and "Notepad - third.txt", you can close all three in once by specifying only "Notepad" (or only one of them by specifying "second.txt")
You can also export a list of all the opened windows into a text file, so that an external application can know in advance if a specific application is on execution, so it can decide whether to kill it or not (and which is the exact title to specify).
This is possible because @KILL can work also as a command line utility, by passing it some parameters, so it can be invoked by external applications and batch files.
@Kill v. 1.0 runs under Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003 and can be used for free either for private purposes or in commercial organizations. For more information, contact aSwIt s.r.l., Via Cime di Lavaredo 30, 45100 Rovigo (RO) Italy. Email: email@example.com
