The code below to kill a process opened using
subprocess.pOpen() works on Linux.
import os import signal import subprocess # The os.setsid() is passed in the argument preexec_fn so # it's run after the fork() and before exec() to run the shell. pro = subprocess.Popen(cmd, stdout=subprocess.PIPE, shell=True, preexec_fn=os.setsid) os.killpg(os.getpgid(pro.pid), signal.SIGTERM) # Send the signal to all the process groups
Unfortunately, it does not work on Windows. The process refused to be killed. How to modify the code such that the process can be killed on Windows?
I am using Windows 10, python 3.8 on anaconda.
