Hello,

I have a third party tool which I need to be able to control via a batch file using DOS. The third party tool has a very basic yet repetative setup operation associated with it, which is time consuming and must be repeated many times, therefore I want to automate the commands I enter into the third party tool.

For example, I need to open the third party tool - 'mss.exe'. And then want to automate the task of entering a list of commands sequentially one after the other - it will be necessary to simulate a key stroke <enter> after each unique command.

Im offering 250 points for this problem, which should be quite easy to resolve. If a solution is offered very very quickly I will raise the points. Im under a strict deadline on this one.

Im working on a secure environment and must use batch file processing to perform this task - or any other solution which can be acheived using the core windows setup.

Any help with this would be grately appreciated.
