Call executable - How to keep .exe running in cmd

Hi,

 

I have a Teststand sequence (2017) like following:

The goal is:

 

In step "Start_iperfServer_DUT1" a .exe tool is started in cmd by call execuable.

 

After running of next step "Start_iperfClient_DUT1", .exe tool returns the response in cmd. And the response should be saved in a parameter (use Store in Variable/Property).

 

 

But the Problem is step "Start_iperfClient_DUT1" will only be executed after step "Start_iperfServer_DUT1" finished. That means .exe tool was already closed. So the response can also not be taken.

 

Anyone have ideal how to solve this problem? Thanks

Hi johnsnow34,

 

Would setting your Call Executable steps to not to wait, see below, help?
