using HTMLValidator in batch files

Post by roedygr » Mon May 05, 2014 2:17 pm

I have not yet nailed down exactly what is happening, but my batch files behave differently
when I invoke htmlvalidator depending it if it already running or if it has to start afresh.

I would like some way to make them behave consistently, as if it were not already loaded.

At this point I can't be more specific. I don't yet know just what is happening, just that my batch files don't work when HTMLValidator is already running.

I think it may be the subsequent steps start running even before HTML validator has done its thing.

That's strange. Of course I would need to know the details to determine exactly what is happening.

You may want to try adding the -msgwindow option to run a separate instance... like this:

Code: Select all

cmdlineprocessor.exe -msgwindow batchinstance ...
The it should start a new instance if it's already running (unless the already running instance was already launched with the same msgwindow name).

You may need to add the same -msgwindow option to all cmdlineprocessor.exe calls you are making in the batch file, so they all work using the same instance.
