Create batch file for run the application and kill the application

Hello,

we deployed SAP GUI on all our PCs but we need to copy the ini configuration file to specific location but the problem this location did not exist until the SAP run for the first time after that you can find the path and copy the file.

so i want to create a script file to run the application and close it or kill i the copy the ini file to to the specific location (the file should be replaced with the new one)

Can we do it ?

Regards,
LVL 2

The following code should work:
@echo off

\\Server\50118243_6\NW_7.0_Presentation_\PRES1\GUI\WINDOWS\WIN32\Setup\NwSapSetup.exe /Silent /Product="SAPGUI710"

md "%appdata%\sap\Common"
copy "\\sharefolder\SAP Batch\saplogon.ini" "%appdata%\sap\Common\"

start /d "C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui\" saplogon.exe

Open in new window

I suppose it is sufficient to create that folder, copy the SAPLogon.INI, and then start the SAP Logon.
@echo off
xcopy \\server\share\saplogon.ini "%appdata%\sap\Common\"

Open in new window

You can try to insert
if errorlevel 1 exit /b

Open in new window

before line 5. The installer needs to return an error code for this to work.

Are you sure you can't just copy the ini, then try to install?
