Command line

Hi all,
Can someone guide on how to use command line for SD 5.0 or SD 4.5?
I entered this command in command prompt:
ovconsolecmd -isrunning
A message like this is returned:
Using C:\[HOMEPATH]\jre\1.4\bin\javaw.exe

may I know what does it mean?
Thank you.

Re: Command line

Hi there,

There was an earlier posting which said that editing the the ovconsole.bat file (usually in C:\Program Files\HP OpenView\bin) to replace

javaw.exe with

cures the fault.

I did this and now it works

Hope this helps
