My question is related to this one. I am trying to run my program in the background using the system command. However, if I understood correctly, when I add "start /b" to the command it does not wait for the other program to finish before continuing with the other operations.
Here is the input line for system that starts the program and waits for it to finish, however, opens in the foreground:
"energyPLAN.exe" -i "energyPlan Data\Data\Portugal_2050_tmp.txt" -ascii "Outputs\Portugal_2050_out"
"energyPLAN.exe" is the program, "energyPlan Data\Data\Portugal_2050_tmp.txt" is the input file and "Outputs\Portugal_2050_out" the output file.
This is the line that starts the program in the background, but does not wait for energyPLAN.exe to finish:
start /b "title" "energyPLAN.exe" -i "energyPlan Data\Data\Portugal_2050_tmp.txt" -ascii "Outputs\Portugal_2050_out"
What is the correct input that starts the program in the background but waits for it to finish?
Thanks in advance!
