Yes it will run stand-alone. Some macros rely on a server however.

Please read the KiXtart Manual, it explains how KiXtart can be used as a login script processor. Additionally, please read Kixtart Starter's Guide .

Finally, KiXtart can run as a 'stand-alone' product, too, as it just process the script that is passed to it through the command line.

I'm just running through the kixstart starters guide now.
And when i run the 'hello.kix' script from the command prompt, i get this error
"Script error: unknown or unexpected command [Hello.kix]!
--------start Hello.kix--------"

Any ideas?

Rob. [Eek!]

OH I get it... [Big Grin] you are taking the instructions too literally. The two lines:
--------start Hello.kix--------
-------- end Hello.kix--------

are not meant to be in the text file, only:
"Hello World"

If you want the other two to be ignored, remm it out with a semicolon.

;--------start Hello.kix--------
"Hello World"
;-------- end Hello.kix--------

What Jooel is trying to say is that if you wrapped those two lines that were never intended to be in the script in the first place, it would fix the problem.

"--------start Hello.kix--------" ?
"Hello World" ?
"-------- end Hello.kix--------" ?

Like I said, don't let him confuse you.

Here is the file i'm calling, that is straight out of the starters guide. Not sure what your intending with the quotes.

Rob.

--------start hello.kix--------
"Hello World"
-------- end hello.kix---------

As shown a couple post above; you will have to put quotes around the first and third lines or use a semi-colon to comment them out.

What did I say about ignoring Jooel and his quotes? Forget the quotes. Reread my second post. The only think that is supposed to be in the file is:

"Hello World"

Certain!
There should only be about 13 characters in your script.
