GeoDMS Run

To run the GeoDMSRun, activate the Command Prompt Window. The GeoDMSRun.exe can then be activated from the command line. The following parameters can/need to be specified:

  • (Optional) /Llogfilename (since version 5.55)
  • (Required) ConfigFileName
  • zero or more tree item names (space separated) to be calculated. Multiple item names can be specified, calculated results will be saved in storage's were configured.


1: "C:\Program Files\ObjectVision\GeoDms552\GeoDmsRun.exe" "C:\svn\GeoDMS\dev\webgen\cfg\dms.dms" /Results/pages             
2: "C:\Program Files\ObjectVision\GeoDms552\GeoDmsRun.exe" "C:\svn\GeoDMS\dev\tst\Operator\cfg\operator.dms" /Arithmetics/plus/test_attr /Arithmetics/sub/test_attr
3: "C:\Program Files\ObjectVision\GeoDms555\GeoDmsRun.exe" "/LC:\tmp\log.txt" "C:\svn\GeoDMS\dev\webgen\cfg\dms.dms" /Results/pages

The first example updates the item: Results/pages in the webgen configuration.

The second example updates two items: Arithmetics/plus/test_attr and Arithmetics/sub/test_attr, both in the operator.dms configuration.

The third example is similar to the first example with logging saved to the file C:\tmp\log.txt.

Quotes in the examples are needed for the file names, as spaces may occur in these names. In the tree item names quotes are not needed, as spaces are not allowed in these names. Note that: The value for LocalDataDir is read from the registry key Software\ObjectVision\DMS\LocalDataDir (default: C:\LocalData) which can be changed in the Tools->Options dialog from the GeoDMS GUI . %localDataProjDir% is usually defined as LocalDataDir/%projName%.

The GeoDMS GUI settings about logging as saved in the registry is ignored for the GeoDMSRun, use the /L option to enable logging.

Commands can alse be combined in a batch file.
