No script engine

I am trying to execute a "ProcessExecuter Test". I am trying to run a simple batch file that writes some text to a file. My executable name is cmd.exe, the argument list is: /c cscript echo.bat %SCTM_EXEC_RESULTSFOLDER% and the working folder is a path to my batch file. The error message I am getting is "Process exited with return code 1". Did I set up my properties wrong?

Hi vb22,

On the Test Properties your Argument List, just needs to be: /c "c:\temp\echo.bat"

I have also made a sample echo.bat file which does the move in it below, create the batch file using the script below, once this works you can modify your own values.


@echo off

@echo "SilkCentral">output.txt

@echo "TestBatch">>output.txt

@echo Number1>> output.txt

@echo Run1>> output.txt

set source="C:\temp\output.txt"

xcopy %source% %SCTM_EXEC_RESULTSFOLDER% /y


What this will do is set the source, and copy it to the working folder as the script is running, the text document is created where the test is executed, so this will be the temp folder.

You will then set your working directory as c:\temp, and just make sure the batch file is in this directory on your execution server.

Let me know if you have any further questions or issues let me know.
