STAAD.Pro Help

I. Command Line Support

You can process STAAD.Pro input files using the STAAD analysis and design engine via the Windows command line. Using this method, you can run the analysis and design engine without opening the user interface at all.

Tip: It is recommended to use a batch file with the necessary commands in it in order to simplify processing and reduce the need to repeatedly type commands. You can even use the Scheduled Tasks utility in Windows to automatically run these files for you on a schedule.
