To launch WMBatch and direct it to use a batch file to control the conversion use this syntax:

wmbatch64.exe -batch_file:<filename>

Input File and Format

To open and parse a wafer map file with a specified format. This instructs the program to open the file, parse it, load the data into the WMLib input database and also copy the data to the output database.

wmbatch64.exe -in_file:<filename> -in_format:<format>

Output File and Format

To convert the wafer map to the output format specify the output file name and format. Input and output file names may not be the same.

wmbatch64.exe -in_file:<filename> -in_format:<format> -out_file:<filename> -out_format:<format>

Configuration Directory

wmbatch64.exe -config_dir:<dirname>

Output Directory

Define a common output directory for files saved by WMBatch/WMlib. This parameter is used in conjunction with the -batch_file: parameter and to initialize WMLib.

wmbatch64.exe -out_dir:<dirname>

Log File

Use this argument to define a custom name and location for the log file. By default, the log file will be written to the user TEMP directory. This parameter is used in conjunction with the -batch_file: parameter and to initialize WMLib.

wmbatch64.exe -log_file:<filename>
