Command Settings

1. Command Settings

The basic command settings are:

1. Friendly Name: The friendly name is a display name that can be associated with this command configuration. The friendly name helps you easily identify the command.

2. Executable: The full path to the target executable or batch file to be run.

3. Run Directory: If the process you are trying to start needs to be started from a specific directory, you can optionally configure the run directory.

4. Arguments: Arguments are the parameters used when starting the target application. Note that LogViewPlus supports a small set of optional argument templates.

5. Prompt for arguments: If the arguments used to start your target application change frequently you can optionally configure LogViewPlus to prompt you. This will give you the opportunity to change the arguments before the target application is executed.

6. Run as Admin: If required, you can optionally configure LogViewPlus to run the target application as Admin.

Post Execution

2. Post Execution

Post execution settings allow you to configure a pre-saved workspace to be opened once the external command has completed. Configuring a workspace is optional.

Save / Cancel

3. Save / Cancel

Once you are done configuring your command you will need to save your settings. Alternatively, if you're not happy with your command configuration, you can cancel it.
