    3DMark06 cmd line commands doesn't work

    Hi I have problem with 3DMark06. It is not working for me as described in documentation.

    3DMark05 works but well but 06 doesn't start any benchmark.

    cmdline command i use is: 3DMark06 results.3dr from folder of 3DMark06.

    Could anybody say to me whats wrong?

    Not sure what you are exactly trying to do? Load a saved result?

    Right click on the main UI and it should offer that option, no need to use command line for that.

    No I want to run 3DMark06 from cmdline and save results to file (results.3dr) what should be possible same as in 3DMark05

    Edit: I can't even start benchmark from cmdline
    In documentation is written that it is possible.

    Are you following the Whitepaper exactly by creating a batch file in the 3DMark06 folder? You could try 3DMark06.exe results.3dr

    If you want to run a number of results on a system using different settings and test selections, this can easily be done using the batch run functionality. The batch run functionality works like standard Microsoft Windows batch files, which use the file ending '.bat'. Just write a text file with a number of 3DMark06 runs, using various settings as command line options, save that text file in the 3DMark06 installation directory, and give the file the ending '.bat'. The batch run can now be run by double clicking the .bat file. The obtained result files can be viewed with the Online ResultBrowser, with the 'Submit Saved Result' functionality of the right-click menu, or they can be viewed in Microsoft Excel, using the 'Open in Excel' functionality of the right click menu.

    Example 1: Save a text file with the following contents with the file name batchrun1.bat:
    3DMark06 results.3dr
    This batch run will run the default benchmark and save the results in the file 'results.3dr'

    3DMark06 Command Line options require Professional Edition and a valid license. Which version are you using?

    Edit: Program starts but no benchmark is running. Run button is highlighted.
    Edit2: Also when im pressing enter and benchmark finishes then no result file is generated.

    Edit3: Now i found that the Advanced Edition is lower Edition then Professional and if in cmd line works only in professional then problem is solved, if im wrong correct, but now it is clear.

    Thank you for your help. I thougth that Advanced > Professional, but it is not.

    Yes, that is how it is, Professional Edition is the one meant for corporate use and that is generally the environment where you want to script testing with batch files. So command line mode is limited to Pro in 3DMark 06 (and Vantage and 11) - this is different from how it was in 05.
