Hi @danielbrun

 

I get the below error while using the TWBX Macro file, It is looking for batchfile.bat file and looks like it is missed in the installer.

Hi Karthik,

 

The batchfile.bat should be created by the workflow itself. Could you please try to enable "Show all macro messages" (see screenshot) and send me the log?

Hi Daniel

 

Thanks for your reply

 

The output did not generate the twbx files and I see that it is generating the tde and twb files in the output folder but it is getting over written by the field which I selected. I dont even see a single twbx file generation after the output.

Here is the view of the Folder after the run

on first run it did not get generated the batchfile.bat file but some how tried different workbooks and it got generated but it just has the copy command and do not see any zip command included to generated the twbx files. Looks like something is missing here

Hi,

 

I think we need to do a Webex to sort it out. I just ran your flow and get no errors :S

 

Best regards,

I have done a update. Please try to download the new version and as we discussed on the phone the .net 4.5 framework.

 

Best regards,

Hi Daniel

 

Installing Powershell 3 and above has resolved the issue. It doesnt work with Power shell v2.

 

Thanks
