Post Run batch job program window is minimized Reply with quote
Hello - Not sure if you can help.
If I run a batch job file manually, the program and data file will open full screen. When I run the program using the scheduler, the program opens but in a minimized window and will not activate or maximize in order to sendkeys.

Thoughts?

You can use the START command with parameters to launch it maximized

Thanks for the reply.
The suggestion provided did not work. The code that I have in a bat file the following code: start /MAX "C:\Program Files (x86)\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit\uedit32.exe" \\WCP10001N5-DTC\FinOps\"ced.txt"

This works fine if I just double click the bat file. However, when I use the 24x7 scheduler using run program or batch file the file opens as an icon on the task bar and will not open maximized. The assumption is that the program window needs to be open in a maximized state in order to use the send keys?

I don't think it matters, but I noticed that the Detached process flag has been disabled with the box being checked. Is it possible this could the part of the issue?

External processes are always detached, they are separate OS processes, that's why the Detached option is disabled for them, it's not applicable.

Try the following trick.


START /MAX cmd.exe /K "mode 200,70" /C "C:\Program Files (x86)\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit\uedit32.exe" "\\WCP10001N5-DTC\FinOps\ced.txt"

Hoe that works for you.
