Release MCEBuddy Proccess After PostCustomCommand

Sep 20, 2015 at 12:33 AM
I have a file moving batch file that is started via PostCustomCommand. I don't want MCEBuddy waiting for the file to complete moving, and would like it to return processing more shows.

Is this possible?

I'm currently calling the move via:
START "MCE Move" /MIN cmd /c move /Y "%OUTPUT_FOLDER%\%~1%OUTPUT_Ext%" %sPAT%\%MMDDYYYY%

No mcebuddy will wait for the process to finish (or hang)

Maybe an option that can be added?

Not a safe option since mcebuddy does some sanity checks after each custom command. This would violate the integrity of that process and can cause other issues.

I would add though, as an option on the PostCustomCommand for those such as myself who are simply moving a file I think the sanity checks could be bypassed without any adverse effect. This of course would ONLY apply to the PostCustomCommand as I believe it's last in line.

Well a simple way out is to use the start command in your batch file with the background option enabled so it won't block and the batch file exits right away

If you are referring to the /MIN switch, I'm already doing that but it does not release MCE.

Still don't understand, I'm not using the /WAIT, and actually used some of the suggested methods in my attempt above. For some reason MCE waits until the file has completed moving no matter how I start the move.

Did you try /B

Thanks for the advice, I'll give that a try.

Still no Joy...

START "MCE Move" /b cmd /c move /y "%OUTPUT_FOLDER%\%~1%OUTPUT_Ext%" %sPAT%\%MMDDYYYY%

This would probably be better served on StackOverflow for experts in DOS commands :)
