I've been trying to run some idf files through command line using energyplus.exe feature (see here), but I got fetal errors. The same idf file successfully runs through EP-Launch.

Upon checking the forum I realized that energyplus.exe in command line would not run basement.exe and slab.exe preprocessors.

Is there any option to run these preprocessors through command line? I am expecting to use this in both Windows and Linux so RunEPlus.bat might not be an option.

It is not currently possible but there is an EnergyPlus feature request for this capability. If you are interested in this feature, go to the link and give the issue a thumbs up.
