OPTIONS parameters

verbose: Verbose output

SpringCardCompanionStatus.exe <ACTION> --verbose [level]

Allowed values for level are:

  • 1 : show execution errors,
  • 2 : show execution errors and warnings,
  • 3 : show execution errors and warnings, and show a basic trace of the execution flow,
  • 4 : all of the above, plus show a detailed trace of the execution flow (this slows down the process),
  • 5 : all of the above, plus show a detailed trace of the underlying libraries (this slows down the process a lot).

If the level parameter is absent, default value is 4.

pause: Keep the console window open when the application exits

SpringCardCompanionStatus.exe [ACTION] --pause

Use this flag to have enough time to read the messages. Hit the ENTER key to close the window when the application has terminated.
