VERIFIED SOLUTION i

New MSDR00.BAT file required for Windows users in MailStream Plus 8.3.1

Operating System: Windows

 
 
The MailStream Plus 8.3.1 has changes for Windows users. Do they have to make changes to their job scripts and use the new MSDR00.BAT file?
 
Page 8 of 9 of the  Release notes, makes this reference:
 
Windows® Script and Program Changes
• Added a new generic run script: MSDR00.BAT
 

No, the MSDR00.BAT is a new feature that is not required.  It is for jobs that can be called from other programs.
 
In the MAILSTREAMPLUS_8.3.1_REFERENCEGUIDE_ALLPLATFORMS.PDF document on page 378, there is a explanation of how to use it:
 
MSDR00 - Standard Presort Engine Script
 
Script MSDR00 runs postal presorts without having to create separate/custom scripts for each job. It also allows Pitney Bowes technology platforms, such as Spectrum or EngageOne, to call and run the postal presort function. The script runs on Windows (MSDR00.BAT) UNIX/Linux systems (msdr00).

 
Please refer to the Reference guide for the complete explanation.
