    Hi

    I’m running my Python script using the command prompt (cmd.exe) and discovered I could have the output directly in EmEditor! But each time I run the command I get “Do you want to terminate the current tool job?”

    I read a previous post on this but was uncertain how to proceed – also, the posts are over 2 years old now.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    I think you were looking at the correct message of 2 years old. This “Do you want to terminate the current tool job?” message appears because the previous external tool job has not been finished before you try to start the next external tool job. If you can’t finish the previous job, you can disable this message by adding the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\EmSoft\EmEditor v3\Common

    PromptTerminateJob

    REG_DWORD: 0

    Thank you!

    Thanks! This worked perfectly.

    On closer inspection I see this actually opens up the cmd.exe process. So by introducing this “hack” we actually close the previous cmd.exe then?

    Works quite nicely.
