I’m trying to launch Maya from the command line batch file and run a Python script once launched. I’m looking into the evalDeferred command so I can run it once the UI etc. has been loaded. Here’s my batch command:
start “” “%ProgramFiles%\Autodesk\Maya2019\bin\maya.exe” -command evalDeferred(python(“execfile(‘Z:\myScript.py’)”))
The issue is that the script runs but in the Editor log I see an error:
// Error: line 1: Invalid argument: //
I think it’s an issue with the Mel syntax. To reproduce the error in Maya, when I run the below syntax in Mel, I get a similar error (errors on line 2):
Any ideas what I’m doing wrong here? Thanks for the help.
