CReW Macros - List Runner returns error "SupportingExes\AlteryxRunner.exe"


We are using list runner in the workflow, it runs successfully in local machine but throwing the below error when scheduled in server.

Error: Designer x64: Tool #247: Tool #3: Iteration #1: Tool #5: Record #1: Tool #2: Tool #2: The external program "SupportingExes\AlteryxRunner.exe" returned an error code: -1
Error: Designer x64: Tool #247: Tool #3: The output connection "Logs" was not valid


we use 64bit machine (designer and in server)

I am also running the "List Runner" on a schedule.


What I did was:


1. I put all the workflows in a folder on the Gallery.

2. I had the list runner installed on the Gallery.

3. I tested that the list runner could be run from the Alteryx Client on the Alteryx Server.

4. I scheduled the list runner from within the Server (remote desktop).


Remeber that any custom macro on a client must be installed on the same location on the server.

I strongly recommend that you always install macros in the Alteryx Macro folder:

C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\RuntimeData\Macros


The list runner is installed with and YXI (Alteryx installer) file, and those always go under the %AppData% folder somewhere, and you should leave them there. But that means that if you share a workflow using a macro from an YXI installer file, then those users must also run the installers. Exporting the workflow as an yxzp is not enough.


Hope this help :)
