I am running an external VBS file through a run script usig the arguement "PW_GetJobFilename". Is there a way to use the "External Programs" to call the VBS file instead? If so, can you please provide me with an example?

Thank you!

If you run your VBS through the External Program task, the PPWatch-specific functions will no longer be available to you from inside the script.

That's because PPwatch actually substitutes itself to the WScript engine when it runs scripts natively and it provides additional functions to work with.

Hope that helps.
