DOpus replaces Explorer as my default shell. Normally everything works perfectly. And I mean perfectly - I love this software.
Anyway, about once a week something happens during Windows startup that means DOpus doesn't open. If I double click the desktop, or if I click on the DOpus icon on my taskbar, nothing happens at all. I checked the Windows task manager and I can see the usual DOpus entries there, but I still can't actually use them.
I used to have to restart Windows, which fixes it every time, but I got tired of that and so tried to manually restart DOpus. I did this by killing Explorer, and then killing dopus from the command line and task manager. I got the commands from this page: How to Exit Directory Opus
It didn't seem to work cleanly. Running
"C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\DOpusRT.exe" /CMD Close PROGRAM didn't seem to thoroughly stop all processes. I had to use the Windows task manager too, in conjunction with the command line. In the end I got all the processes to be killed, and when I restarted Explorer I was then able to restart DOpus.
I'd like to make a little batch script to run whenever I encounter this problem. Is there a rock-solid command I can use that will end all instances of DOpus?
