    Is there a way to close XMetal 7 Author via command line?

    Something like xmetal70.exe /q 

    I can't go into the whole toolbar issue we've had for months but I have discovered that if I install XMetal, then the House ALEX, open XMetal, close it, then copy the default.tbr from Program Files…. to  userappdata…. the toolbar looks good.  I've tried using taskkill and that closes xmetal but not in a nice way where it creates the structure under appdata.

    Thanks,

    Peter

    XMetaL is a COM server, so it's possible to run a script that connects to a running instance.

    Try putting the following in a file:
    [code]var xm = new ActiveXObject(“XMetaL.Application”);
    xm.Quit();[/code]

    and use
    [code]cscript file[/code]
    to run it.
