Subject: Run a Non-IBM program with program doc
Feedback Type: Problem
Product Area: Domino Server
Technical Area: Administration
Platform: Windows 2003 server
Release: All
Reproducible: Always

Hey Guys

I'm a newbie to Program Documents, but not domain > 20 years here, but never tried to setup a program document before.

I want to run one of my own programs & have tried all kinds of different settings & searching with no joy :(

Program name: C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe
Command line: /c D:\IBM\Lotus\Router.exe 17 1

So basically I want to run a program called router.exe in the directory D:\IBM\Lotus & pass the 2 parameters 17 & 1

I have not been able to get anything to run !!!

The help says

"A Program document is used to automatically run a server task at a specific time. You can also use a Program document to run an OS/2 command file, a UNIX shell script or program, or an API program. You can use the Program document to schedule tasks and/or programs."

So I think my program would be considered an API program.

Is this only for running server addin programs ???



PS I have tried other setting, much simpler, but I thought this was as complicated as it could get !!!
