Running a batch file in DOS

Jerry,

Chris tells me to use cmd.exe instead of command.com

so try this:

cmd /c c:\test.bat

   cmd            -- short for cmd.exe
   /c             -- run then terminate
   c:\test.bat    --filepath of batch file to run

Jerry,

The /C is a switch which tells DOS to close after running the batch file.

test.bat is the name of the file...in the same directory as the command.com
file.
because it is difficult to always know you have a correct path, it is easier
to just put the file in the same directory as command.com

you might try fooling around with a designated path like "C:\bin\newmon.bat"
It would look like:

open process "C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM /C C:\bin\newmon.bat"

hope it works!

Jerry,

try:

open process "C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM /C test.bat"

this runs the batch file "test.bat" from within the windows directory
