Wait Hangs
 
I have two run program step calling a batch file on the remote computer, wait for completion is uncheck on both. I'm using 6.7a.
.
i.e. %DOSCMD% call c:\mybatch1.bat and %DOSCMD% call c:\mybatch2.bat


Run program 1
Run program 2
Wait <- hangs even if mybatch1.bat and mybatch2.bat window had closed on the remote machine.

This is what I use to get the process ID on both run program step.


Run program 1
------------------
Sub vbld_StepDone()

' store this step's process ID in temporary macro
vbld_TempMacros.Add "RUNPRG1_PROCESSID", vbld_TempMacro("RUNPROGRAM_PROCESSID").Value

End Sub

Run program 2
-------------------
Sub vbld_StepDone()

' store this step's process ID in temporary macro
vbld_TempMacros.Add "RUNPRG2_PROCESSID", vbld_TempMacro("RUNPROGRAM_PROCESSID").Value

End Sub

Wait
------
%RUNPRG1_PROCESSID%
%RUNPRG2_PROCESSID%

VBP v6 is no longer being supported or updated, but that works as expected in our tests w/ VBP 7.2a and PsExec 1.96. But be aware that this will only wait for the local PsExec processes to finish, not the remote batch file. To run two batch files remotely in parallel, you could put the two steps that call a batch file (configured to wait for completion) into separate .bld files, then use two VisBuildPro Project steps (configured to not wait for completion) to call them, followed by a Wait action.
