Hi Support

We have a batch application (.exe) which is run in a hidden window via the VC Execute task. It is a composition tool which can run for some time. If we run it in a stand-alone CMD window, the STDOUT messages are streamed to the cmd dialogue so we can see at any time what the application is doing. In VC, we can't see the STDOUT until after the task is finished. Is there a way of being able to stream output to the STDERR and STDOUT dialogues within VC so we can also see what the application is doing? If not, would it be feasible to request an option in the Execute task to stream stdout\stderr to a Console dialogue of some kind?

Cheers

You have to choose if you want VC to capture this or the CMD dialog. If you want the CMD dialog to have the output you deselect "Store std output" in the main settings of the Task.

Hi Henrik

Does this assume that you have to start the executable in a CMD dialogue in the first place, (i.e. in a batch file or via the 'Start' batch command via the Execute Task) or does VC automatically open a CMD window?

I only ask as I am not at my desk to test this at the moment

Cheers

Yes, a command window is created for each process.
