Overview of Run DOS / Cmd command Action

Automation Workshop includes Run DOS / Cmd command Action, that automatically executes specified command in Windows command prompt. This Action works the same way as if user had opened cmd.exe command line interpreter and typed in any Command, or batch file name or program name.

Action supports various command starting and terminating options, as well as setting Windows command prompt window position and size.

Features & highlights:
  • Automation Workshop not only serves as a command line script replacement, but can also integrate these scripts into its own operations whenever necessary.
  • Runs DOS commands as well as batch files and Windows executables, thus efficiently extending the built-in capacities of Automation Workshop.
  • Waits for the specified command to complete and streamlines its results into the automated data flow.
Usage examples:
  • Custom scripts perform operations not provided by Automation Workshop set of tools.
  • Connect already existing batch scripts with a wider automation context.
  • Schedule periodic Windows prompt command execution with the following automatic response to their outcome.
