RE: Run a shell script

I wish I could help you more.  Unfortuantely we aren't using WTX in a unix environment...

shot in the dark.... try changing 'SHL' to BAT and see what happens.

RE: Run a shell script

I tried BAT it didnot work same error exit call failed.

RE: Run a shell script

Maybe this will help...

GET("SHL","-cli -cmd 'script.sh arg1 arg2'")
GET("SHL","-cli -cmd 'script.sh -ABC target_path/file '")

Note the case for CLI and CMD are lower...  Make sure you use them in lower tense.  I understand that Unix is case sensitive and all examples I saw had them in lowercase.

Good luck!

RE: Run a shell script

I changed the mod to 777 and run using the command -cli -cmd it worked thanks eyetry
