Run Program

Previous  Top  Next  

This action can be used to run any kind of program on your machine.  This action is very versatile.






Command Line  ROMx116_dblisttable

The program to execute.  This can be an EXE, COM or BAT file or any other executable file.  Please note that this should not include any command line parameters or flags.

Parameters  ROMx116_dblisttable

Any parameter(s) that you need to pass on to the program. 

Startup folder ROMx116_dblisttable

You can optionally specify a startup folder if necessary.  If not startup folder is specified it will default to the folder where the program is, i.e. the Command Line folder.

Wait for Program...

If this is checked the Build Automator™ will be suspended until the program that you run terminates.  You will not be able to access or do anything in the Build Automator™ until the program that you run closes or you close it manually.

(Variable for run code)

Allows you to select a variable to put the run code from the executed program into.  This is temporary only as we are already putting this into a system variable called $ExitCode$  We recommend that you do not use this drop down for that reason.
