Looking for the code to run a journal file through a batch file.

 

I would like it to do the following.

1.  Execute Revit with Journal file(directory location)

2.  Delete Journal Files

3.  Exit Batch

 

I can't find much help on the web.  Surely, someone here knows how to do this.

 

 

thanks you in advance.

Drag and Drop is the behavior I am trying to mimic with the batch file.

 

I have used this in the past at an A+E firm where the Architects were using AutoCAD and the Engineers were using Revit.  Using a batch file was our way of keeping .dwg drawings current.  Essentially we created a journal file which opened the central file detached, exported pre-selected views to autocad, and closed the program.

 

We then executed the journal file with a batch file.  The batch file ran the journal file, deleted any newly created journal files, and shut the computer down when it was done.

 

I need to know how to EXECUTE A JOURNAL FILE WITHIN A BATCH FILE.
