How-To use a Command Line tool as Source in LimagitoX File Mover

In this how-to we’ll explain you how-to use a command line tool, aka CMD, as source in LimagitoX File Mover.

First you need to add a CMD as Source:


The following screenshot shows the CMD setup. In this example we’ll trigger a Ping from the Command Line. The result of the ping is stored in a text file. In this example we’re using a couple of parameters:

%DFD = Destination File Directory

%TCD:mmddyyyy-hhnnss: = Time Current Date format YearMonthDay-HourmiNuteSeconds

cmd /c ping > %DFD\PingCheck.%TCD:mmddyyyy-hhnnss:.txt

The Destination Directory of the Command result is set to: C:\Test\In\CMD\In\


We selected ‘Move’ as function, so files created in the previous CMD Destination Directory will be Moved to its final Destination.

We added a WIN local folder as Final Destination.

Result in RuntTime Log:
