TERMINATE script not called in IDM 8.0

Dear experts,

IDM 7.2 provided the predefined script names INITIALIZE and TERMINATE, which were called by the runtime automatically at the start and end of a job, respectively.

In IDM 8.0, I can verify that INITIALIZE still works. TERMINATE, however, seems no longer to be called.

Any comments or suggestions how to workaround that issue?

Kind regards, Lambert

PS: here's the 7.2 documentation about this behaviour directly from dse.chm:

A script named "INITIALIZE" is always run at the start of a job. A script named "TERMINATE" is always run at the end of a job. These scripts can be used to pre- or post-process data, produce a job report or similar tasks. You can also preload program objects - e.g. Microsoft Word - for later use, to avoid this overhead every time a script is called.

Hi DP,

thanks for offering help. The pass I've been using the TERMINATE script in was toGeneric in a provisioning job, i.e. a job where only this single pass exists.

I've meanwhile found out from @terovirta's very helpful post that I should have better used a "Close Destination" script instead of TERMINATE for my purposes. That's what I'm using now as a replacement, and it works fine. My problem is solved.

Sorry for replying late. I had my email notifications turned off.

Best regards,

Lambert
