Although not strictly a batch file solution, you could get a 3rd party app like Firedeamon (sp) , which will turn your app into a service. you can then create a batch file with something like ...


@echo off
net stop MumServer
net start MumServer

Since it gets installed as a service , you can set it to start on system startup, or set it to manual, and start/stop it via batch files, scheduled tasks, vbscipt etc etc.

Where exactly is it not working, in setting up the service, or trying to start it  ?
