Primary Software Version: 8.5.1
Primary Software Fixed Version: 7.1
Secondary Software: LabVIEW Development Systems>>LabVIEW Professional Development System
When I call a Windows batch file with the System Exec VI, why doesn't it show the batch file commands as they run?
By default, the System Exec VI will not echo batch file commands as they are run. To change this behavior, do the following two things.
If you place the word pause at the end of the batch file, and use the /c option, the batch file will prompt the user to Press any key to continue... After the user presses a key, the Command Window will close.
