Mathsoft batch launch

Mathsoft batch launch

Mathsoft batch launch


Hi there,

I'm trying to launch MathCad in batch mode;

I use the following command from prompt:

C:\Programs\Mathsoft\Mathcad\mcad.exe myfile.mcd

My problem is that MathCad runs the file, but it doesn't execute a "Run", while I need it to execute the calculations in the sheet.

I need it to Run the sheet automatically, 'cause I am launching it multiple times with different input values, from a C program.

Are there any -options I can use when launching it from prompt or are there any settings to be modified within MathCad environment to automatically Run the file I open ?

Thank you very much, and sorry for the newbie question ^^'
