Model Check from the command line

Model Check from the command line

Model Check from the command line

Is there a way to run Model Check from a command line? I see at the end of the modelcheck.bat file there is a line:

"%prodir%\%MC%\obj\modelcheck.exe" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6

Is there any way to plug in the information that you need to just be able to double-click on the modelcheck.bat file (or a shortcut to), and have it complete the model checks, as it looks like all it needs is arguments to fill in the "%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6".

RE: Model Check from the command line

You should be able read through modelcheck.bat and determine what the 6 variables are that it needs and build a command string which can be entered in a command window.

Double-click on an icon to launch a program is NOT the same as running it from a command line.

RE: Model Check from the command line

The bat file runs under cmd and is called with arguments. You'll need to find out what those arguments are; be aware that they may be created and assigned from environment variables by whatever starts Modelcheck.

I don't see a way to successfully run it from the cmd window, but it can be run on its own.

You may wish to ask on PTCuser or PTC Community. portal.ptcuser.org (ask fast, they are being liquidated soon by PTC Community) and http://communities.ptc.com

RE: Model Check from the command line

Thank you all, I will definitely check into some of those ideas. If I find a way, I will post back with an answer.

RE: Model Check from the command line

Modelcheck is included in most of the PTC bundles. Sigmaxim products have a cost associated to them.
