Running an external program from within a Transform branch


Active Member
I am trying to use the "Run Program" object to execute a program that is located locally on the C: drive of the server. When I try to run the object from within designer, the event viewer just starts and stops with nothing happening. I can run the same command line from a command line prompt on the server without issue, but the "Run Program" object does not even seem to try.

If anyone has any experience using the "Run Program" , or any other method for executing an external program from within a branch, please provide some feedback.
