Background Processing on NT Server

18 July 2006 - 03:09 PM

I am trying to get Batch Queue processing to run on a Glovia ERP system that runs on an NT server. I have read the documentation on background (batch) processing (SuperLayer Administrator's Guide - Part 2 ) and have set up a function for testing. The following is what I have done to date:

1. Set up operator QUE
2. Copied batchque.pro to the \USERDATA directory
3. Set up an update function for test purposes that has Queue Id and Priority set to 1

When I execute the function, I see where it gives me the message the the function is going to batch processing. And when I check the batch queue, the function is there.

My problem is what do I need to do to get it to actually execute the function in the batch queue?

Unfortunately, the documentation only illustrates what is needed to execute/initiate for UNIX, i.e., in my case, "pro QUE1." How do I do the same on an NT server?

Thank you for any assistance that you can provide.

I have a text file with one line of text I would like to extract:

Option 1

I call up notepad.exe to open the file :
$$COMMAND = 'GUI ASYNC notepad c:\ftype.txt'

The above works to open the local text file with Notepad.

The following doesn't work as I don't have any idea what to put in for ???:

#A = DDE_REQUEST('NOTEPAD','c:\ftype.txt','???',$$VALUE)

Option 2

Is there a way to use ALIAS() to read from my local drive?


Convert Printer Mapping Setup

19 May 2004 - 04:34 PM

:D I have a barcode label printer attached to LPT1 using Windows driver mappings. I can print labels from the machine if I have mapped the printer using the following Printer Mapping Setup:

Host Printer LP0
Windows Printer DEVICE:
Device/File Name LPT1

My question is how can I convert the above to any/all of the following:

I have tried many combinations, but either I get a locked screen which forces me to disconnect or "Error Code 13, 140 - CANNOT SUCCESSFULLY OPEN PRINT FILE).

Running Glovia 4.2, Kernel Version 4.6000, Revision 5.0.0a (Aug 7, 02)
