Running the VeriStand Gateway Silently

Last Modified: June 10, 2021

Deploy a system definition without launching a VeriStand user interface, such as VeriStand Editor or System Explorer.

By silently running the VeriStand Gateway, you can deploy a system definition, close the user interface, and then reconnect to the still-deployed project upon re-opening the user interface. This allows you to leave the system definition deployed while being able to connect and disconnect testing user interfaces as needed.

If you run the VeriStand Gateway silently without first launching VeriStand, the VeriStand Editor will indicate Legacy Project Functionality Disabled in the window title. While in this state, you will not be able to access the following features:
  • Workspace
  • Workspace Tools dialog box
  • Console Viewer
  • XNET Bus Monitor
  • Channel Calibration
  • System Explorer Options dialog box

While the Gateway is running silently, you can check on the Gateway's status and use programmatic APIs.

  1. Open a command prompt.

    You can also use the Windows Run command or a language of your choice.

  2. Execute one of the following commands using the following syntax: "<Base>\veristand-server.exe" <command>.
    Command Description
    help Displays command options.
    start Starts the Gateway.
    stop Stops the Gateway.
    status Displays the Gateway status.
