I need to run frequently 3 longrunning backrouund programs.
Instead of open the windows explorer each time and clck on them , what i need is a scipt to run all the 3 programs (.exe files ) at once  in one command or one script file.

Hi mordi,

You could create a batch file:

Open notepad
type the full path to each file on a separate line
save the file as something.bat

running this batch file will now execute all 3 programs

e.g.

c:\windows\notepad.exe
c:\program files\myapp\runmyapp.exe
c:\youget\theidea.exe

HTH,
Nat

Simply create a text file named runmyprograms.cmd (or whatever.cmd) on your desktop; if you have the extensions hidden, make sure it's not named whatever.cmd.txt.
In the batch file, just enter the path and the name of the exes you want to start. The "start" in front of it will make sure the script continues instead of waiting for the program to finish before running the next command.

start "" "C:\Programe Files\Acme1\acme1.exe"
start "" "C:\Programe Files\Acme2\acme2.exe"
start "" "C:\Programe Files\Acme3\acme3.exe"
