After you install MapForce, several JScript example files are available in the directory C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Altova\MapForce2024\MapForceExamples\API.
The example files can be run in one of two ways:
•From the command line:
Open a command prompt window and type the name of one of the example scripts (for example, Start.js). The Windows Scripting Host that is packaged with Windows will execute the script.
•From Windows Explorer:
In Windows Explorer, browse for the JScript file and double-click it. The Windows Scripting Host that is packaged with Windows will execute the script. After the script is executed, the command console gets closed automatically.
