This article describes how to import an .sft file from the command line in Microsoft SoftGrid Client.


All Sfttray.exe command-line options are case sensitive. These options include the application name. You can import an .sft file from the command line by using Sfttray.exe. Sfttray.exe accepts the following parameters for importing.

Command Usage Description
/load /load "[path_of_osd]" This parameter specifies the .osd file.
/sftfile /sftfile "file://[path_of_sft]" This parameter specifies the .sft file to import.

The Sfttray.exe usage for importing an .sft file from the command line is as follows:

sfttray.exe /load <OSD> /sftfile <SFT>

Examples of this usage are as follows:

sfttray.exe /load "\\SGVAS\content\ea70.osd" /sftfile "file://\\SGVAS\content\ea70.sft"
sfttray.exe /load "E:\ea70.osd" /sftfile "file://E:\ea70.sft"

The user can start the application only after the user successfully authenticates against the SoftGrid Server. If the SoftGrid Client is disconnected from the SoftGrid Server, the application will start if the user previously authenticated against the SoftGrid Server and if the Minimal Disconnected Operation (MDO) time-out interval has not elapsed.
