    Hi kamit2733
    did you try to use External Tool?

    It might be easier.
    What you should to see after opening logs.bat file?
    According to python documentation:

    On Windows, the return value is that returned by the system shell after running command, given by the Windows environment variable COMSPEC: on systems (Windows 95, 98 and ME) this is always 0; on cmd.exe systems (Windows NT, 2000 and XP) this is the exit status of the command run; on systems using a non-native shell, consult your shell documentation.

    Do you have access to os modules?
    On my side following script works as expected:

    you don't need subprocess module. In my script I have additional part which use subprocess.

    Hi Ireneusz

    Is it possible to capture the log.bat output in SOA Write File?

    I don't think is possible with your script. See my first comment and part from python documentation.
    You should rewrite your script to use subprocess instead of os.system.
    Or (even better), do not use bat file, just write script in Extension tool which can do the same.
