Launch Application Robot

Good afternoon.


I was wondering if anyone has had any experience working with this particular robot. If so, I would appreciate seeing any examples you would be willing to share.


I am trying to find a way to launch a batch file using a workflow to act as the trigger. But I haven't been able to find any examples for this particular robot. In our application, I would like to be able to pass two workflow variables to a batch file and run it.


I would appreciate any hints. Thanks!

There is one OOTB example of in windchill. You can load those xml files using LoadFromFile command

Attached is sample workflow to run the .bat file (stored at C:/TEMP/LauncgNotepad.bat ).

Re: Launch Application Robot

Hi Shreyas,

I tried an exact copy of the runBat file from above but I wasn't able to get it to work, is it possible that I need to change some permissions on the host machine?

Thanks,
