my frontlinesms cannot execute my command using command line execution to trigger application to execute (using a keyword). Please help.
my executable file is located somewhere in my local machine e.g.
c:\documents and settings\users\joey\myfolder\MyApp.exe
the above command was type but doesn't work...
try surrounding your command with double quotes ("") and check that this path is actually readable (open a command window and try it there first).
Best of luck,
tnx for replying immediately sir Morgan, :D
i enclose with double quotes but it doesn't work
"c:\documents and settings\users\joey\myfolder\MyApp.exe"
i also tried this: with "\\" because i thought the "\" is an escape key.
"c:\\documents and settings\\users\\joey\\myfolder\\MyApp.exe"
my current project is i have this application created in c# that will control an electronic device. by sending a text message using a keyword, the flsms should execute this application. e.g. the application will turn on/off the device.
have you tried this exact command window (the windows black screen)?
yep sir, through command prompt in windows (terminal), it works fine...
Did you have any error displayed?
Can you send your logs?
no error appeared.
i have a keyword PRINTERON
and i set external command > command line execution with the following command:
whenever i text PRINTERON nothings happen sir... but when i try to execute that command in the windows terminal it works perfectly...
any idea about this sir?...
tnx in advance...
Ok, but are you sure the keyword action is triggered?
Try adding an auto-reply as well and check you actually receive the response.
If you do, then there is something wrong when launching the Device.exe program, and we'll need to see your logs to have a better view of the situation.
If not... ;-)
i think you're right sir...
i added some auto reply,, but the FLSMS will not send the autoreply message, so i think keyword is not triggered...
Well then check your message is really starting with the keyword (no extra space or anything), and that the keyword is active in FrontlineSMS.
Once you'll have the keyword working, your command should be executed properly ;-)
Best of luck,
i made it,,, my local machine System date is not properly set... start date and end date of keyword activation is set to 2012 that is why keyword is not triggered... because text messages recieved date is 2011
i can now move to another project... :D
tnx for the help sir Morgan and FLSMS
Ok, perfect! \o/
