Completion of a batch file that launches another batch file.
Very basically, our problem can be defined by using the two MS-DOS batch files included with this message. The file titled testdir.bat contains one command -- "dir". This batch file is successfully executed by SilkTest and control of the test is returned from the SilkTest Agent to SilkTest.
The second .bat file titled teststart.bat contains two commands -- "start dir" -- which should launch a new command window then display a directory. This batch file is not successfully executed by SilkTest.
The new command window is launched, but the directory list is not displayed in the launched command window, and control of the test is never returned from the Agent to Silk Test.
We must have the ability to launch processes that will remain running, or at a minimum, launch a batch file to call the required process, from SilkTest and have control return to SilkTest so we can continue running
testcases. Previously, a support engineer gave us some examples of invoking a new window but used Notepad as the AUT. We specifically need to be able to use a command
window and interact with it (we actually need to interact with command line based process a LOT in our AUT).
