Been a long time. Nice to see some activity, even if it is just a little.
Jumping back on the saddle but running my dev server on on my windows box and I threw something together real quick that would restart the server
if it had crashed or I wanted to reboot.

I am sure that this could be a lot cleaner but it works, I might get around to cleaning it up.

This script is for PowerShell
Your can just open PowerShell_ISE.exe and created a new file. Save it in your c:\dawn folder.


do {
if (!(Get-Process -Name dawn.exe*)) {
   ' stopped at ' + (Get-Date) >> C:\dawn\dawnrb.log
    Set-Location C:\dawn
    if (!(Get-Process -Name dawn.exe*)) {
   ' BAD Day ' + (Get-Date) >> C:\dawn\dawnrb.log
    $wshell = New-Object -ComObject Wscript.Shell -ErrorAction Stop
    $wshell.Popup("Something went horribly wrong",0,"Oh Noes!!!!!!!",16+0)
start-sleep -seconds 10
} while ($true)

There are a few ways to execute this, I just right click it and Run Through PowerShell.

Be sure to edit seconds (default is 10) to how often you want it to check for the process.

You are going to need to create the C:\dawn\dawnrb.log file.

At the very least it is a starting point. If it proves to be helpful to anyone then I am happy.

::::: UPDATE :::::

This script is not working as it had originally, seems like I can't avoid adding a scheduled event task. I'll keep the code here for at least a
start point for someone who may want to tweak it. I will update this once I get the kinks worked out
