SteveGTR shows the right statement, but to explain a little.
exit is a specific command which you cannot use as you are trying to.

You have to use the goto command with a label. To let the above make a little more sense

IF "%computername%"=="mycomputer" goto :EOF
<statements put here will be excuted if computername is NOT equal to mycomputer>

<statements put here will be excuted if computername IS equal to mycomputer>
ThePrutser, please don't post if you have nothing new to add. Not only is your information just a restatement of my information it is incorrect as :EOF is a predefined label that does not need to be specified.

Steve, I am sorry about the incorrect info of the :EOF. I only want to make sure the post was familiar with labeling in batch files. Your correct answer was a little short of explaination according to me. If a novice user would read your reply (found by google or whatsoever), I can imagine he does not understand your answer completely. Just trying to help, sorry if I offended you.
