  • Dynamic variables & Events of the Start App. Retrieve the app name along with its full path, PID, and exit code (if the app has exited). Also, obtain the program arguments and the start-up folder. Furthermore, detailed events are recorded during the app startup and termination of execution, including a user-defined outcome (information, warning, or error).


  • Long file name usage · explains the necessity to delimit long file names using double quote characters.
