End a batch file
Posted on 2005-03-25
I an typically making changes to the .MDB weekly.
I want those changes to go into effect the next time a user fires up my .MDE, so I compile it to the network, and have the users execute a batch file that copies the new .MDE to their local work stations, then fires up the latest version of the .MDE.
The problem is, my batch file won't end until the user terminates the .MDE.
Is there a way to force the batch file to end and close while the .MDE is still running?
here is the batch file:
copy "O:\MyDir\MyOtherDir\MyProgram.mde" "C:\Program Files\MyDir\MyOtherDir\MyProgram.mde" /y
