Running non-window programs

Recommended Posts

Look at the Launch and Activate command under Windows/Programs. You can launch a program and pass it parameters. Then maybe have your macro wait in a Delay command or a Repeat loop (with delays built in) until the launched program finishes -- either wait a specified time interval or for the program to create a file or Registry entry containing its results, or something of the sort. Then retrieve the results of the launched program and continue processing.
