Difference between Run Asynchronous command and Run Synchronous command RRS feed

  • Question

  • I noticed that most of the configuration passes have the following two options:

    a) Run Asynchronous Command

    b) Run Synchronous Command

    Based on my research I understand that Asynchronous is used for running scripts/services (Example: C:\Async.bat) where synchronous command can be used to execute commands directly (Example: mkdir C:\Synchronous). Is that correct?

    Are there any other differences?

  • Both types of commands can run the same types of commands, scripts, and applications.

    The only difference between the two is that if you have a set of commands, asynchronous commands will execute one after the other without waiting for the previous command to complete, where synchronous commands wait for each previous command to complete before executing the next.

    FYI, if you highlight any setting in ICE and hit F1, you'll be brought to the help topic for that setting.
