3dexperience- run catutlity from cmd


New member
Hello I am working on 3d experience (CAtia V6) and want to run a CATUTIL- "Drawing Batch" from command line, but its not getting executed and returns object not found. I used the same file which was created when i run the batch manually through the UI.

I used the following:

catutil -Name "Drawing Batch" C:\temp\BatchParameters_10.47.18.xml

but when i use different batch it runs fine:

catutil -Name PLMThumbnailBuilder C:\temp\PLMThumbnailBuilder_19-02-2019.xml

The batch name has space in between the words how can i handle it would that be the issue?

I think the " " around the name are to handle the space. But you cold try renaming the program if you know where to find it.

It's probably just a typo that causing the problem. Check everything closely. I see one has . (periods) and the other users - (dashes) ????
