Toucan failing to return code, trying to sync and shutdown afterwards.

Hello there,

I'm trying for hours to get Toucan to run a job (which works fine) and to shut down the pc afterwards.

Via commandline,

start /w "(path to toucan)\toucan.exe" jobname does not work,
start /w "(path to toucan)\toucan.exe jobname" does not work either, nor does
start /w "(path to toucan)\toucan.exe" "jobname".

If you leave the "start /w"-command away, it works, as long as you have only one job specified (so you could put all your jobs in a script and run this), but it does return its non-errorcode immediately, so a following "shutdown"-command will interrupt the sync-process.

I've tried to make the script itself shutdown the pc, but failed.

Is there a way to make it do what I want?

Thanks for your help

Benni

There

have been a couple of reports of Toucan having issues with shutdown, but I honestly have no idea why it is failing in this case. I think perhaps the best thing for me to do would be to add a command to the script system to shut down the pc, then it ought to work ok. I will try and get it added to one of the version 3.0 development tests soon Smile
