Hello Hossein,

If the first step is to run an .exe file, you can use the run command Action for this.

Then if you need to open a text file you can use the same Run Action. If you need to read from file you can use the File System Action. 


I hope this helps you. If it did not solve the issue, please outline with more details what is it you are trying to accomplish. If you have a task build you can copy the code and attach it to the post and let us know where you are having issues.
