Hi, I am using a WMI script to rename/IP machines per their mac address -- when that is done I am using the following to call a command that joins to the domain and performs some other things.  I just want to see if someone can clarify the syntax for me and provide other available options you can use.  Basically -  I want the script to run the command, wait while it executes, then close all windows.  Here is the code I am using.

set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts://" & Computer)
set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
  objShell.Run"cmd.exe /C test.bat", 1, TRUE

I assume the /C will close the window -- but not sure
Note sure what ,1, TRUE do

Any clarification and extra info would be greatly appreciated!

Hi jkrech17,

with /c you are right: it stops the command processor when finished.

For the parameters to the Run method see
