Loading Robotic Automation projects from the command line

Updated on September 10, 2021

To start Pega Robot Runtime from the command line and specify the name of the project (or package) that you want your users to run, include the -d or Project= parameter. This way, your Pega Robot Runtime users do not have to select the project from the Runtime menu that is available from the task bar.

To load a project, perform the following steps:

  1. Open a command prompt window.
  2. At the command prompt, enter the command to start Pega Robot Runtime and include the -d or Project= parameter. Include quotation marks (") around the path and project name.

For version 19.1 and later, to load a project, enter the following on the command line:

C:\{path to the Synchronization Engine install folder}\Pega.Loader.exe -d "path and project name"

For version 8.0 SP1 and earlier, to load a project named example.openspan, enter the following on the command line:

C:\{path}\OpenSpan.Runtime.exe Project="C:\OpenSpanDeploymentFiles\example.openspan"
