The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Can someone provide an example of a command line to be executed for the "Run Program" remote task. I am sure the syntax is simple but I cannot get anything to work. There are no examples in the documentation.

The format is a executable name followed by parameters. Make sure the executable you're calling is in the path or provide the full path. For example...

xcopy src_file.txt dst_file.txt

This command is passed directly to the OS and doesn't go through the command shell. If you want to execute a shell command, you can do the following...

cmd /c dir > listing.txt
