Hi,
I have a simple 1 line copy stmt in a .bat file.
It's not executing properly, but can't see what's going on or the error msg.
Is there a way to leave the command prompt window open after execution, successful or not?
thanks,
phil

Hi spoowiz,

Run it from the command prompt to see what is troubling it.
Start => Run => type "CMD" (without the quotes and press enter)

Greetings,

It's a long stmt so I was hoping to not re-type.
Is there a way to copy/paste?

Sure, just select everything, then press CTRL-C
Switch to the command screen (if you use it full screen, press ALT-enter to make it a window)
Rightclick on the top left corner => edit => paste

If you open the file in an editor (notepad or equivalent) select the text and copy it.
Start - Run - CMD
Click Top-left corner of Command Window select Edit - Paste
Execute the command and the result should appear on the screen and stay there.

Thanks. That's really useful. I always wondered why the command prompt didn't have cut/paste function. Now I know it's there. Sorry Nermal, LucF beat you to it.
