Hello @jason.huang

Please be informed that the Q&A forum is dedicated to Refinitiv Api's general usage questions.

I highly recommend you contact the Eikon support team directly to help you. You can contact the team via the https://my.refinitiv.com/ website.

I put the following in a .bat file and use the Windows scheduler to run it every day. The order in which you kill the processes is important, otherwise they keep recovering.

Thank you doina. I did the same thing after calling the Eikon support got the answer they don't support the graceful auto restart.

Instead of killing the subprocesses I killed Eikon.exe and I can see all children gone.
