C:\Program Files\Dassault Systemes\B18\intel_a\code\bin\CATSoftwareMgtB (Windows XP Pro)
C:\Program Files\Dassault Systemes\B18\win_b64\code\bin\
CATSoftwareMgtB (64-bit code on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dassault Systemes\B18\intel_a\code\bin
CATSoftwareMgtB(32-bit code on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition)


/usr/DassaultSystemes/B18/OS/catstart -run CATSoftwareMgtB

where  "OS" is:

  • aix_a

  • solaris_a.

CATSoftwareMgtB Batch Command Syntax

-I1: Checks integrity - Level 1 only control files are checked; quickest
-I2: Checks integrity - Level 2 checks existence of all installed files
-I3: Checks integrity - Level 3 checks existence and validity of all installed files; this may take several minutes.

If you do not specify the " -o" option, the output will be displayed on the screen on both Windows and UNIX.

On Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, the build level will be specified like this in the batch output:

Build Level = B18 (32-bit)
Build Level = B18 (64-bit)

depending on the case.

  • -D: dumps system information to the output log file (see Getting System Information). This option is only available on Windows.
  • -killprocess: detects running processes (for example, Orbix) in the installation folder (unload_dir/code/bin) and prompts you to kill them if you decide to rollback the service pack using the "-R" option: if you do so, running processes will be killed, if not, the service pack will not be rolled back. Do not forget to restart the processes afterwards.
  • -h: provides help on arguments.
