I am transferring a system from Win9x to Win2K
I have a "startup.bat" run from the startup folder which updates a few things, then starts several programs.
(The timing/order of startup is important.)
Win2K leaves the DOS window open when the batch has finished. (until you close the last of the programs, then the DOS window disappears.)
I want the DOS window to close as soon as the startup operations have completed - the startup.bat is finished. (as it does in Win9x with the "close on exit" option)
The situation can be easily replicated - e.g. a batch that starts Word, then Outlook, or msaccess, shows the problem.
start /b cmd /c "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Winword"
start /b cmd /c "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\msaccess"
