Re: mega api need to mega exe for work?

Hi,

 

Your demand is not clear about using windows service when running MEGA API. But, if I well understood the purpose of your question is how to create a API that will be launched automatically on a given a server without the intervention of an Admin.

 

If it's the case, you can code a script that will perform serial of actions to be led on the repository, dispatch the transaction and kill the MEGA process. Of course, you can configure this script with the task scheduler.

 

Here is an example of a script that connect to a given repository, create an application with the name "APP1", dispatch the transaction and kill the MEGA process.

Set oMegaRoot = Nothing

StrBDD = "Database"
strUser = "U1"
strpass = "PassWord"

Set MegaSite = CreateObject("mega.application")

strPathEnv = "C:\Users\Public\Documents\MEGA HOPEX V1R1\Env"
Set MegaEnv = MegaSite.Environments.Item(strPathEnv)

MegaEnv.CurrentAdministrator = strUser
MegaEnv.CurrentPassword = strpass
MegaEnv.CurrentProfile=strProf

set myTransaction = MegaEnv.Transactions.create(StrBDD, strUser)
set oMegaRoot = myTransaction.Database.Open

MyDB = oMegaRoot.getCollection("Application").create("APP1")

oMegaRoot.MegaCommit
set oMegaRoot = nothing
myTransaction.Dispatch

Set MegaBase = Nothing
Set Root = Nothing
Set MegaSite = Nothing
Dim oWMIService, colProcessList, oProcess, MegaProcess, bGoodEnd
bGoodEnd = true
MegaProcess = "mgwmapp.exe"
Set oWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & "." & "\root\cimv2")
Set colProcessList = oWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_Process")
For Each oProcess in colProcessList
    if oProcess.Name = MegaProcess Then
                               oProcess.Terminate()
                               Wscript.Sleep 1000 '1 sec d'attente
                end if
Next
Set colProcessList = Nothing
Set oWMIService = Nothing

Re: mega api need to mega exe for work?

While we create megaApplication , at the behinds it wants to work mega "mgwmapp.exe"  but in windows service doesnt permission. 

Im asking ,why mega should open that exe for working own api?

Re: mega api need to mega exe for work?

While Windows server connect to mega to get process. I think  , we should run client provider "Mega\MEGA 2009 SP5\System\mgwmapp.exe"   .Because of that exe is form appilcation . We Cant run form application from windows service  then we  cant connect mega. 

 

So that , is there different wat to connect mega different from  at the above logic?

Re: mega api need to mega exe for work?

Hi,

 

Just simple question , Mega Api work in windows service and  while megaApi Open it is trigger of mgwmapp.exe .

 

mgwmapp.exe is a form application and while api try to run it. its terminate project because of it is windows service.

Re: mega api need to mega exe for work?

Hi,

 

I am not the lab but mgwmapp.exe is not a form application. all my web services or batches are emulating this .exe that is the core executable of MEGA to pertform operations in the reposirtory in a "silent mode".

Could we have further infos (grab of error or xwarnings ? )

Thx

Re: mega api need to mega exe for work?

Hello

 

I can confirm what Lionel says: mgwmapp.exe is not only a windows form.

This process is the core of the MEGA application run from a windows machine.

 

An instance of mgwmapp.exe is started whenever MEGA Deskop (Mega.exe) is run.

  • In interfactive mode
  • In batch mode (using Administration APIs)

This is by design. There is not way to change this behavior.
