The JScript below starts the application and shuts it down. If the COM object of the 32-bit XMLSpy cannot be found, the code attempts to get the COM object of the 64-bit application; otherwise, an error is thrown. If an instance of the application is already running, the running instance will be returned.
|Note:||For 32-bit XMLSpy, the registered name, or programmatic identifier (ProgId) of the COM object is XMLSpy.Application. For 64-bit XMLSpy, the name is XMLSpy_x64.Application. Be aware, though, that the calling program will access the CLASSES registry entries in its own registry hive, or group (32-bit or 64-bit). Therefore, if you run scripts using the standard command prompt and Windows Explorer on 64-bit Windows, the 64-bit registry entries will be accessed, which point to the 64-bit XMLSpy. For this reason, if both XMLSpy 32-bit and 64-bit are installed, special handling is required in order to call the 32-bit XMLSpy. For example, assuming that Windows Scripting Host is the calling program, do the following:|
1.Change the current directory to C:\Windows\SysWOW64.
2.At the command line, type wscript.exe followed by the path to the script that you would like to run, for example:
wscript.exe "C:\Users\...\Documents\Altova\StyleVision2023\StyleVisionExamples\API\JScript\start.js"wscript.exe "C:\Users\...\Documents\Altova\XMLSpy2023\Examples\API\JScript\start.js"
// Initialize application's COM object. This will start a new instance of the application and
The JScript code listed above is available in the sample file Start.js (see Example Files).
