    Execute Command, continuing on error

    Q: Execute Command, continuing on error. I have a rule which moves a file from one win folder to another win folder and then runs a CMD against it. If the CMD errors out it keeps retrying the file. How do I move the failed file to another folder on the error and NOT retry it with the command line?
    My current setup is:

    • WIN as Source
    • Destinations:
      1. WIN
      2. CMD (Execute Command)

    A: In our latest version v2022.6.2.0 we added a new ‘Redirect ExitCode to PS Integer Var A (%VIA)’ option. Please check the ‘Advanced Tab’ of the CMD (Command) as Destination. Enable this option to transfer the ExitCode to our Pascal Script Integer Var psVIA. We’ll use the psVIA var to move the source file in case the Command returns a value <> 0 (which normally is an errorcode).

    We will need a third ‘Pascal Script’ as Destination.

    1) WIN as Destination
    2) CMD as Destination
    Now please add a third ‘Pascal Script’ Destination. This must be in the last position. Do not forget to adjust the Const ctErrorPath value. This Pascal Script will move the source file to an error path if the ExitCode of the CMD (command) <> 0.

    Limagito File Mover Destination Setup

      ctErrorPath = 'C:\3ProcessError\'; // must end with a /
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      If psVIA <> 0 Then
        psMoveFile(psFilePath + psFileName, ctErrorPath + psFileName);
        psLogwrite(1, '', 'CMD ExitCode Error, psVIA: ' + IntToStr(psVIA));

    Execute a command line tool after processing multiple files successfully

    Q: Howto execute a command line tool after processing multiple files successfully. I have a rule that moves 1 or more files and starts a uses the command option After copy/move/delete success to run an executable. I could get 1 file or I could get more every day. If I receive 1 file everything is good but if I receive more than 1 file then the rule is trying to process all the files individually where I need it to run the exe after all files are moved. Is there a setting to move all the files then run the exe, I think I’ve had this issue before but I just can’t remember how I fixed it.

    A: We added a new option in version v2021.12.26.0 to achieve this.

    Command, On Rule End Execute Condition option (v2021.12.26.0) [+]

    In your case we should not use ‘After copy/move/delete success’ because this is triggered for each file. Instead, select and enable the ‘On Rule End’ Command instead AND with ‘On Rule End’ selected do enable the ‘All files successful’ Execute Condition option in the Advanced Tab.

    Microsoft Defender Antivirus Command-Line tool before moving a file

    Q: I would like to use an Antivirus Command-Line tool before moving a file to its Destination. Can you recommend an antivirus scanner that your software can call and scan the file before transmitting?
    A: Since Microsoft Defender Antivirus is installed on latest OS versions we decided to use the command-line version ( mpcmdrun.exe ) of this AV.

    We are using a 64bit Windows 10 and installed the 64bit version of our Limagito File Mover. In this case the 64bit version of our File Mover is a must because the AV Command-Line tool is also 64bit. It will not work otherwise.

    • In the following example the Source is a Windows folder (WIN). Our goal is to transmit some pdf files to an AWSS3 Destination. Before sending the files we want to scan them using the command-line version of Microsoft Defender Antivirus.

    Limagito File Mover Windows folder as Source

    • Open the ‘Function’ setup, important here is that ‘Exit Cyclus on Error’ is selected.

    • Now we are going to add our Destinations. The first Destination must be CMD (Command), the second Destination is where the source file will be moved to if it isn’t infected by a virus.

    Limagito File Mover Destination setup

    • CMD (Command) Setup as First Destination:

    CMD /C ” “%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe” -Scan -ScanType 3 -File “%SFP%SFN” “

    When the AV scan is successful the ExitCode will be 0. All other values will be treaded as an error and will result in the source file not being moved to the second destination due to the ‘Exit Cyclus on Error’ selection in the Function setup.

    • The second destination is where the source file will be moved to if it isn’t infected by a virus. You can choose this yourself. In our case it is AWSS3.
    • In case the AV returns an error (CMD ExitCode <> 0) then the file will not be moved to its second destination. Now you can add an ‘On Error’ Rule event to warn you.
