The runtime module is designed to run a prepared task without the main RoboTask application. However, the Runtime module uses the entire engine to run the task.


RoboTaskRuntime.exe <Task_File_Name> [/stop|/nonstop] [/out:<full_file_name>] [/taskparam:<task_parameters>]


Command line parameters:

<Task_File_Name> - full name of task file

/stop - (optional) if you want to stop the application before exiting anyway to read the log

/nonstop - (optional) the application is forced to continue running and exit even if the task stops with an error. In this case, it is better to write the log to a file (see the /out: parameter)

/out - (optional) output task execution log to a file

/taskparam - (optional) task parameters
