I have created a macro that opens a report in Cognos Powerplay 7.4 MR3, changes the dimesnion line and saves it as PDF. The macro works if I run it directly from the script editor or if I run the macro with runmac32.exe using a batch file.
When I schedule it in Windows Task scheduler, however, it doesn't finish. I can see in Task manager that it starts pwrplay.exe and runmac32.exe, but the task hangs with status "running". I'm using Windows Server 2008 64-bit. The user account has sufficient rights and I've checked "run with highest privileges" and "start whether user is logged in or not". I also tried with a simple macro that just opens and closes Powerplay, but with same results.
What could be the problem? Has anyone succesfully scheduled a PP macro? I'm already updating the cubes in Transformer every night which works great, but getting automatic reports would be even nicer.
