Invalid command line option /SCRIPT
I need to open SecureCRT and execute a script from windows shell (in a HTA application) but when I try to execute the command in the windows CMD shell,
everything work perfectly except the "/SCRIPT" option:
(I removed /L and /Password for the screenshot)

I'm new with SecureCRT, we use version 6.6.2.

The script "getConfig.vbs" is in the correct folder (../App) and work great in the GUI.

The application I am making is working with PuTTY but by simulating keypress... So running a script with SecureCRT would be much better.
Thank for your help!

Hi Ttmylink,

I think the issue is just that you have your command-line options out of order. :)

Per SecureCRT's Help topic Using the Software / Command-Line Options / Overview of Command-Line Options standard options (/SCRIPT is a standard option) come before protocol-specific options:

SecureCRT.exe [standard options] [protocol-specific options]

What are the results with:

SecureCRT\securecrt.exe /SCRIPT getconfig.vbs /ssh2 /L user /Password p4$$w0rd

Thank you bgagnon, it worked!
My options were not in the right order.
