Issue

powerJobs should be started automatically when the work station restarts


Solution

It is not possible to automatically login when using powerJobs.exe, but it is possible to do so when using jobprocessor.exe. You can either do this by cheking the "Administration/Start on Windows Logon" setting in Jobprocessor or by using a batch file during startup. Please refer to the Microsoft and Autodesk documentation for information how to automate Jobprocessor with scripts.


Remarks

  • When using Jobprocessor.exe instead of powerJobs.exe you will lose the following features
    • powerJobs log window
    • Automatic update of configuration files. (Just start powerJobs.exe one time after adding/removing script files. The configuration changes carry over when using Jobprocessor.exe)
    • Time triggered jobs
  • There is a suggestion in our feature request forum about automatically starting powerJobs. Vote it up if you want to bring more attention to this issue.
