How do I run my Jobs on other machines?

Solution:

If the other machine that you want to run WinAutomation on has the software installed, you can simply export the job and import it on the other machine. If this other machine does not have WinAutomation installed, you can simply create an executable file that will run on any machine, by compiling the Job.

To compile a Job, you simply select the job, and click on the “Generate EXE” button found in the WinAutomation Console. A window will appear asking you to further configure your Job before it is compiled.

I want to use my Jobs.dat on more than one computers (but determine which jobs will run on which computers)

Problem:

I want to use my Jobs.dat on more than one computers (but determine which jobs will run on which computers)

Solution:

Discussion:

Using the “echo” command line we can get any information we need that will help us specify which user is logged in on which computer and on which network.

This is very useful when we need to check whether the user logged in is the one we want to run the Job through.

It also makes it possible, for a Job’s database to be shared between more than one machines, without creating problems regarding jobs that are running on schedule.
