I don't think that cmd.exe was ever directly allowed (in restricted mode). You need to run your document with --shell-escape. When I try your document I get a prompt in the window where pdflatex compiled the document.

What about Lua? \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \directlua{ local fp = io.popen("kpsewhich article.cls") local fh ="blub.temp", "a") while true do local line = fp:read() if line == nil then break end fh:write(line, "\noexpand\n") end fh:close() fp:close() } \end{document}


Tikz externalization can't solve memory problems, because what it does is saving the output of the tikzpicture environments as an external file (pdf or eps), after it has been compiled. If your code doesn't compile, nothing can be externalized. After correction of your syntax errors (read your error messages!) it compiles for me with LuaLatex. But you ...


The following process works for me on Windows. First, the following code will create your PNG files and a file called tempRename.bat that contains DOS commands for renaming those PNG files to your desired names (the -shell-escape option is necessary for the \write18 function). \documentclass[tikz,convert]{standalone} \begin{document} \newcounter{num} ...
