Ok folks, here we go:
We need a batch file that will allow a program to run, and when complete, exit from a terminal services session.  The problem arises when we introduce ScriptLogic and the batch file runs and logs off the user immiediatly.  We have tried various DOS enable/Disable, extensions etc. to no avail. Here is the batch file:

@echo off
c:
cd \progra~1\logician
start /wait c:\progra~1\logician\logician.exe mlsetupo.txt
logoff

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Jim

Have you tried placing the contents of the script (except "logoff") into another batch file & executing it?

example:

kicker.bat
@echo off
echo Starting logician & waiting for completion...
start /wait logician.bat
logoff


logician.bat
@echo off
echo Starting logician...
"c:\progra~1\logician\logician.exe" mlsetupo.txt

You may also be able to run start /wait cmd /c "c:\progra~1\logician\logician.exe" mlsetupo.txt
and achieve the same results, but I'm not exactly sure.  This question has sirbounty written all over it.  :-)

Howdy b0fh,
75% solved with your help so far.  Final problem is the batch file clearing itself and finishing the terminal session logoff.  Using your original ideas for a batch fie within a batch file has done well, we just need the final piece.

Thanks for the help thus far,
Jim

Where is it hanging?  Try adding a line w/ the single word EXIT to the end of each file.

Hi b0fh,
Sorry, that didn't help.  What we need is when the application terminates, that the terminal server sessions ends.  Unfortunately, we need to figure this out using batch files.  Scriptlogic seems to need this to do what we need it to do.

What about:  logoff sessionname /server:yourTSmachine  ?
If not, pslogg


from logoff /?

LOGOFF [sessionname | sessionid] [/SERVER:servername] [/V]

  sessionname         The name of the session.
  sessionid           The ID of the session.
  /SERVER:servername  Specifies the Terminal server containing the user
                      session to log off (default is current).
  /V                  Displays information about the actions performed.

Hi b0fh,
We're still working on it.  Your suggestions have really given us a direction to work from.  I'll let you know how we're making out.

Hi b0fh,
OK, we got it done.  We had to also add slagent.exe & slclient to the registry runonce as DWORDS.  However, your direction was certainly key in getting us to the right place.

Thanks,
Jim
