Start new console from build

Answered

Hey there,

I am trying to start a .exe program from the build runner, but I don't want it to run in the teamcity console, I want a brand new console that runs independently from the current build. So far I have tried a few things without any success.

Tried with a powershell script:

$ErrorMessage = "POWERSHELL ERROR"
try {
  Write-Output "About to start backend"
  Start-Process Program.exe
  Write-Output "Started backend"
} Catch {
  Write-Output $ErrorMessage
  exit(1)
}

Tried starting a new console with this command:

Start Program.exe

I'm starting to wonder if it's even possible.

Hello Yann,

Do you run agent as service? Please try to start agent via command line, for more details see the section.
