I have searched in here, and my apologies now if the answer is in here and I have not searced well enought.

I have found many reference to wizards like install shield or Inno Setup Compiler that create .exe files, which is great but the computers on our networks dont have administrative rights so they do not let you run .exe files. So I am trying to create a Windows Batch file that will clean up a current folder, and then place the items that i am needing into the folder. Then I am trying to create another batch file that will be like an updater to pull the current access version.

Since there is programs that create the .exe files is there a wizard that can create a .bat file?

Batch scripts do not need to be compiled. You just open notepad, put in a series of instructions, and when you save it, change the filetype from .txt to "any" and name it scriptname.bat. After you save it, it will be executable inside of windows.

While I do understand that, I am not very skilled in creating said batch files. So was trying to see if there was an easier way without having to memorize a book.

Sorry for the delay,

There are a lot of sites on the net that have batch scripts for a variety of purposes.
A really good place to start is:
