Hello All, I have built the standalone .exe for one of my equation calculations. It takes couple of inputs rom user in a edit box and I have couple of drop down menus as well. What I was looking for is a way which I can automate the process. I tried system() and was able to open the application but the inputs were not getting transfered. Is there any documentation or way to do this stuff through matlab ?

You could rewrite the code so that the main function of the executable took inputs on the command line and acted on them.
Or you could use Java Robot class.
But I wonder if you should perhaps have gone for creating a mex or dll instead of a standalone .exe ?
