External process: error after time delay

Jump to solution


I am using the external process to run a script which will send emails.

Everything is working fine, when we receive a new MAX file in the hotfolder, the script is triggered and the email is sent.

I deleted the $FFin$ and $FFout$ parameters because I don't use them. I only have variables of MAX.

Although everything works, the job ends in error.
I imagine FreeFlow Core is waiting for a return and not receiving any?

Here is the error message received:
FreeFlow Core job 890123 failed with the following error: External process: script timeout C:\FFCEmails\ScriptEmail.bat "Variable1" "Variable2" after 20 seconds.

How to avoid this?

Thank you
