Hi,

I need to execute an console application with automation. So I want to give inputs from a batch file.

It will be like this.

1. My batch file must start the console program (myconsole.exe)
2. Wait for the welcome mesage and then give the first input
(Program ask for the second)
3. Batch will give the second input
4. Then program ask for a second question like "do you want to replace file" and bacth must enter "R" to console as answer.
5. Program will do job and finished. If it gives error my batch file must log this with date.

If any clarification needs write it.

Thanks.

start myconsole.exe
will start the program...not sure how you'll determine what the welcome message is from a batch file?  And what do you mean by first input, second input?

Do you have choice command on your system?
