Automate Command Prompt using blue prism

0 votes

I am try to create a BOT in RPA that will read excel files and then try to execute some standard commands from command prompt using the data in excel files. I am using Blue Prism for this purpose. While I am able to read excel files and store the data in collection, I am not able to automate command prompt in Blue Prism. I tried to use a code stage in c# to create a cmd process ( code is given below), but it does not recognize the 'Process' class.

System.Diagnostics.Process process = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo startInfo = new         
System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo();
startInfo.WindowStyle = System.Diagnostics.ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
startInfo.FileName = "cmd.exe";
startInfo.Arguments = "<command script>";
process.StartInfo = startInfo;
process.Start();

Any help or guidance in the right direction will be appreciated

A more 'Blue Prism-ish' solution would be to launch 'C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe'' with your needed commandline. But your solution is technically better I believe.
