Stopping Spark with TaskKill for upgrades


i was just wondering if any one had gone this working and how they did it. bascially we use a Novell Zenwork solution for software deployment. and i’m using an MSI to do the install.

for the install to work spark needs to be not running but no matter what i do i cant get the damn thing to stop…

currently i am running TASKKILL /IM Spark.exe /T

this will shut off spark completly when not logged but if the user is logged it just closes the open windows leaving it running in system tray. I ahve tried running this command as system and as the logged in user.

any ideas ??
