This is the best and most reliable unlocker on the web. I just have one feature request when using it via the command-line.

Recommended Posts

If you navigate to the folder containing IOBit Unlocker and pass the following:

IObitUnlocker.exe /?

You'll get a message showing the command line options for the program. Here's a screenshot:


Everything works great! For instance, if I have a locked file (ProtoMono-Light.otf), I can just run the following:

.\IObitUnlocker.exe /Delete /Advanced "C:\Users\futur\Desktop\TestDel\ATK Proto Mono\OT 1.000\Core\ProtoMono-Light.otf"

And it's instantly deleted. I love it. The only problem is that when the process completes, the program spawns a dialog saying "Operation Succeeded.":


I want to use IOBit Unlocker in various PowerShell and C# projects, to automate deleting stubborn / locked files. But if I use this in a script, I really don't want this dialog to pop up, as it will mess with the flow of my script or program.

My feature request is simple: Add an optional "/Quiet" flag that will prevent this "Operation Succeeded" dialog from popping up. And hopefully, as icing on the cake, maybe emitting the confirmation message to the console instead, so I can capture that to determine if the operation succeeded or not. 

Right now in my PowerShell scripts I'm just simulating an "Enter" key press after sleeping for 100-200ms after the deletion, to make the dialog go away. But this doesn't always work, because the dialog doesn't always automatically take focus.

Anyway, sorry for the long post.

The short version is this:

1. Can you add a "/quiet" command line option that eliminates the "Operation Succeeded" dialog?
2. Can you emit the "Operation Succeeded" or "Operation Failed" response to the console when this flag is set?

Thanks so much for any consideration.
