Try this to bypass the pauses.


@echo off
setlocal
 
set folder=C:\BatchFiles
 
for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('dir "%folder%\*.bat" /B') do (
 echo. | "%folder%\%%G"
 echo del "%folder%\%%G"
)
 
pause

Open in new window

Paste the script below into a text file with a .cmd extension.  Customize the value of the "folder" variable with the location of the BatchFiles folder.

Running the script will echo commands to run and delete every .bat file in that folder.  Once you have tested it successfully, remove the "echo" from lines 7 and 8.


@echo off
setlocal
 
set folder=C:\BatchFiles
 
for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('dir "%folder%\*.bat" /B') do (
 echo call "%folder%\%%G"
 echo del "%folder%\%%G"
)
 
pause

I think i know why it wont run its because of the pause, its not going to execute in the existing batch file

I dunno.  You'll have to review the batch script that returned the error.

Personally I don't much fancy troubleshooting a thousand of the things.
