dos batch file to start multiple executables sequentially
Posted on 2004-11-16
How do I tell one batch file to start multiple executables one after another? I know you can do:
start /w C:\"program files"\prog1.exe
start /w C:\"program files"\prog2.exe
but does the "/w" tell it to wait until prog1.exe is completely done and quits THEN start prog2.exe? I don't wnat that, I want it to start prog1.exe and leave it to run in the background, then start prog2.exe ...please tell me if I'm not understanding the "start" command correctly or if there's any other way to do what I want...
