Starting Batch Processing Queues on Windows

When you launch a Harmony module, some functions are performed in the background that you generally do not see. Two of these functions are as follows:

  • tbprocess: Manages requests for batch processing of vectorized drawings or rendered scenes.

When you ran the Harmony Configuration Wizard, you had the option of having batch processing on your system. If you selected the Yes option and had a valid license, the tbprocess starter is ready to run; otherwise, you cannot perform batch processing on Harmony.

  • tbdbserver: When you have a Server/Standalone configuration, this function controls the entries you make to the Harmony database (like adding new scenes to a job).
NOTE: When you run the Toon Boom Harmony Configuration Wizard, it automatically configures your system to launch the tbdbserver, so you do not need to configure anything else.
