I'm followign up with a more specific subject.
I want to automate the check in of design files to Vault on each PC, prior to running workspace sync (Vault) which does have command line support.
I know you can schedule tasks within the Inventor Task scheduler, but has anyone task scheduled the Inventor Task Scheduler? I suppose in theory you could schedule the launch of Inventor Task scheduler via the Windows one? or is there any need? If the Inventor Task scheduler isn't running, but a task has been scheduled, will it execute the program itself?
This can to be done through VBA. If you use the argument /Automation, inventor will start invisible, and you can later get GetActiveObject and do your processing.
>>>Process.Start("C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2013\Bin\Inventor.exe", "/Automation"). You may also want to post this question in Inventor customization forum for alternate solutions around starting task scheduler automatically.
If the Inventor Task scheduler isn't running, but a task has been scheduled, will it execute the program itself?
Yes it should. Because you are configuring the task to a windows user login. It has to run without task scheduler being initiated.
check the Inventor task schedual's properties, It is:
"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2014\Bin\TaskScheduler.exe"
So you could use command to run this program.
You coudl configure the frequence at special time. then all the task could be done by itself
