SMS - Can it accept a failure code ?

SMS - Can it accept a failure code ?

SMS - Can it accept a failure code ?

Hi Dudes,

I have a question regarding SMS and failure codes, and basically I would like to know if there is a way of allowing certain failure codes when an advertisement has finished running a package.

Currently, I have a package which runs, does everything it needs to do, but SMS detects a failure code of 2. This then prevents the next package from running.

The program which returns the failure code of two, is a command-based executable, initiated via a batch file. Somewhere along the line, it does a whole host of deletes, several of which it never finds. This is perfectly acceptable, but unfortunately, leaves a return code of 2.

This is actually the Nonav program (used for removing Symantec Antivirus), which is a fairly complex routine. I have tried setting its exit code back to zero, but it is not straightforward.

A simple solution is for SMS to accept the failure\return code of 2.  Trouble is, I can't find out if this is possible.

Any help appreciated.



RE: SMS - Can it accept a failure code ?

This might sound dumb nut try running a bat file that runs the bat file you already have.  This way it will show it ran the bat, that runs the other bat file successfully.
