Running a Job Script automatically when you start mDesktop

 

You can run a job script automatically when mDesktop starts by modifying the properties of the mDesktop icon so that after the Target you add /R: followed by the job script name e.g.

"C:\Program Files\matchITv6\matchit.exe" /R:jobname

where jobname is the reference of the job script.  To quit matchIT automatically at the end of the job script, you have to run a program at the end of the job that simply contains these commands:

on shutdown     && this stops matchIT asking if you want to quit matchIT on next command

quit     && Quit matchIT

 

However, if you want matchIT to automatically close on the job completion and remove any Temp files that were created your close script will contain the following:

DO UseTable WITH "PARAMS", "P", "", 1

lcCleanup = p.do_cleanup

replace p.do_cleanup with "YES" && set to cleanup temp files without asking

do cleanup

DO UseTable WITH "PARAMS", "P", "", 1

replace p.do_cleanup with lcCleanup

on shutdown     && this stops matchIT asking if you want to quit matchIT on next command

quit     && Quit matchIT
