I'm writing a basic script to export IDF from PADS to produce consistent results (units, output selections). My issue is that we only have one floating seat of the IDF option. I would like the script to check out the IDF option and release it when it finishes. I recorded a macro that I run within the basic script but playback of the macro doesn't work.
The macro contains:
List1.Checked(22) = true
It opens the Installed Options dialog but doesn't check the IDF option or apply it. How to I check the option and apply or can this be done easier without the macro? Thanks for any help!
Look into using lmutil.exe via your code its a decent work around when certain automation utilities don't provide an easy way to check for license availability.
lmutil.exe lmstat -c <location of license.dat file> -f <feature>
reports the license usage of a specific feature in specified license.
