I am  hoping to use a .VBS or .BAT file to lunch multiple CMD windows, each window  pinging a computer with the -t variable.

ping.exe computer1 -t
ping.exe computer2 -t
ping.exe computer3 -t

each of these being in a separate window, all windows launching and running at the same time.

Any thoughts on how I can do this?

Thank you

Use the "start" command.

batch file example:

start ping computer1 -t

start ping computer3 -t




Hope this helps!

Looks as if I'm a bit slow on the draw.

Sorry BrandonGalderisi, I didn't intend to duplicate you.

... and to make it more compact, let's FOR it ... and run all that windows minimized.

for %C in (computer1 computer2 computer3) do start /min ping -t %C

(In batch file, use %%C in both occurances)
