How do I run something from a command line in Blue Prism?

To run something on the command line, there are two options:-

  • Use the Start Process (or Run Process Until Ended) action of the supplied ‘Utility – Environment‘ VBO, and place the command(s) to be run in a batch file.  Place the full path and filename of the batch file into the ‘Application’ input parameter field.


  • Attach to an existing instance of ‘cmd.exe’ once it is already running, spy the full window, and use the Global Send Keys function (in a Navigate stage) to send the command line that you wish to run, including the ENTER key
