Control Center will allow you to cancel a batch processing task before it starts by deleting it from the queue, but if you delete a batch processing task while it is already processing, it will still finish in the background.
Vectorizing tasks are added to the queue on a per-drawing basis. This means that if you want to interrupt the vectorization of a scene, you can simply stop the batch processing service and clear the queue in Control Center. However, rendering tasks are added to the queue on a per-scene basis. Therefore, the only way to interrupt the rendering of a scene while it is currently rendering is by interrupting the Harmony process that is rendering the scene.
- Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to open the Windows security screen.
- Select Task Manager.
- If the Task Manager only lists the open applications and has no menu or tabs, select More details at the bottom.
- Open the Details tab.
- Look for a process named tbprocess.exe.
Right-click on the process and select End process tree.
This will terminate the batch processing daemon (tbprocess.exe) as well as any Harmony process it might have started to render a scene or vectorize drawings. The batch processing daemon should restart instantly, but it will not attempt to process the batch processing task that was interrupted again.
