We are also having lots of desktop applications. If Flow provides this feature, it will be easy for us to integrate those tools into Flow.
Same. I searched around and was surprised to find that this is not a feature people are asking for. what about any type of script - WSF, or Powershell?
Yes, Its better to have a feature to invoke any kind of batch, command line or script located in end user machine.
Is there a command for executing a * .bat file. example a mail from (?) with attachment .xls save it as and then have a * .bat file edit the data.
i found a way how to run it through microsoft flows.
1. You need to download the programm TRIGGERcmd (the program is free)
2. Create an account, register your computer and create a task where you put in the path of the batch file
3. Then you have to create a flow and choose TRIGGERcmd as an action
4. Fill in the necessary cells and there you go
It runs without problems on my computer
PS: The on-premises data gateway is very good but you can´t open files through that so you have to programm your self a trigger or switch to a alternative program like TRIGGERcmd and please be gentle i´m from germany and i know that i´m making some grammar mistakes etc. 😂
