This web page refers to our older busTRACE 7.0 which is no longer shipping. Click here for details on our latest generation busTRACE software.
This WEB page comes from the busTRACE 7.0 User's Manual. (Table of Contents)
busSCRIPT allows you to build up a sequence of Command Descriptor Blocks that you can send to one or more storage devices. You can use busSCRIPT to test and debug your script. Once your script is finished, you can choose to create an executable script that you can share with others to run on their computers.
When you are ready to create an executable script, click on the Create Executable Script toolbar button from the main user interface.
You will then be shown a standard Save As dialog box. The executable script is saved, by default, in a ZIP file. The user you send the executable script simply needs to unzip the files onto their computer and run the BSClient.exe executable file.
Creating executable scripts has a variety of uses. One of the main benefits is the ability to retrieve information from a system that is not readily available to you. For example:
By bringing in the capture file into busTRACE, you are able to see exactly how the customer's target system responded to your script.
Please note that executable scripts are only compatible with Windows 2000 and above (x86 or x64 platforms). They are not compatible with Windows 95/98/Me.
