Batch file under XP /wait (or wait for app to finish)
Posted on 2006-11-08
Hi, I am creating a batch file to automate lanching of my application, but I am wanting to launch the application and have the batch process wait until the application has finish (been exited/closed) before it continues.
I have tried the start /wait <my.exe> but it only waits until the application has started running before continuing.
Is there anyway to do this so I can have the batch file launch the exe, wait and when the program has finished running (even if it is running for a while) to continue after?
Help is greatly appriciated as I have been using pause to pause after start /wait, but then I have to press a key to continue with the batch and want to make it automated. I remember seeing it somewhere, been searching, but not found whereI had seen it. :/
