Description

Can a DMS script program be compiled and linked as a windows executable file?
Sometimes this feature can be useful to hide information the end user should not be able to read like password of admin users embedded in scripts.

Solution

Yes, a procedure written using the DMS script language provided with CA can be compiled into a windows executable file by following the steps here below:

  1. Open the DMS Script Editor-Debugger.


  • Load or write the program using the DMS script language.


  • Save the source code as <MyScriptName>.dms
    where <MyScriptName> is the name you choose for your script.


  • Test its execution from within the interpreter environment.


  • From within the environment select "Help/About script". The About script editor window will popup.


  • Press CTRL+Shit+Click on the 'OK' button. A new popup window stating "Finished making the script executable file: <MyScriptName>.EXE".


  • An windows executable┬áversion of your script will be saved in the same location your script source code was saved in step (3).


  • Run <MyScriptName>.EXE to verify it actually runs the same tasks as the interpretation of <MyScriptName>.dms.
