Create a simple Process - Part 1

In this part of the 'Building a Simple Process' section, we'll discuss how to create a simple Process using WinAutomation.

The Process will include two Actions: one to create a Folder named TestFolder on the C:\ drive, and another to display a message box, with the title "My First Process" and the message "Folder 'TestFolder' has been created!"

1. Click on the New Process icon in the top left of the Processes Tab in the Console:

Click on OK button or click the Stop icon to close the message box and to stop the Process from running.

On the Variables Pane on the right you can see the variables that have been created from the execution of the Process above.

Finally, make sure that the Folder has been created on drive C!
