CompuTreeBatch needs to run from its own directory? (plus some other issues)
I’m working on running CompuTreeBatch (v5.0.184e) and I found a couple of issues:
1) It appears that you have to run the program from its own folder, since it is looking for ./plugins which fails if you are in any other folder. This is a solvable problem but seems like it should get fixed (just ID the location of CompuTreeBatch.exe that is running and set that to be the working folder for the plugins).
2) The paths are encoded oddly in the XML file:
-→ please look at the screen capture I uploaded since the codes get “interpreted” by this forum so it isn’t showing what the XML sees.
This was created from Computree GUI, but fails to run in CompuTreeBatch. If I edit this to read:
<FilePath value=“R:/projects/tls_mensuration/analysis/computree/P109_E1/P109_E1_clip.las” id=“5” description=“">
it works fine.
By the way, this format is totally conducive to easy templating + batch mode. My plan is to put a searchable placeholder in the script file and then do a search/replace to put it into batch mode.

Thanks for these feedbacks. We will consider them for next computree version.
For script format, next Computree version (6) will use a new script file format easier to manage outside of Computree.
Also, for repetitive processings, another option is to use loops inside GUI interface, see there: http://rdinnovation.onf.fr/boards/1/topics/1123
