Thank you Andrey for your response, however I do not see the results you assert should occur.
In digging a little deeper, the difficulty seems to be in invoking the overall matlab execution in Windows without a bat file.
The following should be an easily reproducible test on any Win machine that has any version of Win MatLab and Condor:
at standard dos prompt: matlab -r diary;path;exit
This opens MatLab (full desktop), and lists its current path into a file 'diary' in the current working directory then closes.
I've removed all other options for simplicity e.g.
As I understand it, this should transcribe to the condor_submit file as ...
arguments = -r diary;path;exit
I've also tried = "'-r diary;path;exit'" which is DblQuote SingleQuote -r ... exit SingleQuote DblQuote
as per the documentation. No Joy.
If someone can assist in this example on Windows I'm sure I can build from it.
