Process Prompt

Version 1.1.0

Prompt users to terminate specified processes before a software deployment task is executed 
When deploying software installations or updates, sometimes certain programs need to be closed first before the install/upgrade can complete successfully. However, most automated software deployment tools such as Microsoft SCCM (and other similar tools) have no option to take this in to account and so the deployment task will simply fail if a particular process was running at the time. Process Prompt was designed to be used with your existing deployment tool and will check to see if specified processes are running before attempting to run your software deployment task - if any of the specified processes are running then it will prompt users to close those programs and will wait until they have done so before it executes the software deployment task.
