Hi guys,
I currently have the following batch file that works great.

Usage is:
script.bat [computer_name]

========================================= script.bat
@echo off

if [%1]==[] (
echo useage: script [computer_name]
echo         Please enter a computer name before running.
goto :eof
)

echo Checking the following 4 services on a machine %1 .....
 
rem check_services.bat <computername>
for /f "tokens=1-6 delims=[.] " %%a in ('ping %1 -n 1 ^| find "["') do set ip=%%c.%%d.%%e.%%f
ping -n 1 %1 >nul 2>&1
if %errorlevel%==0 (
   echo %1 [%ip%]: Up
) else (
   echo %1 [%ip%]: Down
)
echo sc \\%ip% query alerter
sc \\%ip% query alerter
sc \\%ip% query browser
sc \\%ip% query server

rem ============================ end of file

What id like to do is run the same thing but just in a hta window.

=============================================== script.hta

Please enter a computer name __________________  <Go>

Output seen in the hta as if running it from command line.

===================================== end of hta

Any help greatly appreciated.
========================================= script.bat

@echo off
 

if [%1]==[] (

echo useage: script [computer_name]

echo         Please enter a computer name before running.

goto :eof

)
 

echo Checking the following 4 services on a machine %1 .....

 

rem check_services.bat <computername>

for /f "tokens=1-6 delims=[.] " %%a in ('ping %1 -n 1 ^| find "["') do set ip=%%c.%%d.%%e.%%f

ping -n 1 %1 >nul 2>&1

if %errorlevel%==0 (

   echo %1 [%ip%]: Up

) else (

   echo %1 [%ip%]: Down

)

echo sc \\%ip% query alerter

Have script.bat in the same location as the hta.

Actually you might wanna change the SCROLL="no" to a yes. I set it up so you can run it multiple times and it appends to the last command.

Hi astro,
Youre a gun.
astro....last one.

Is there any way to add:
1) The abilty to refresh the hta? At the moment, you cant it seems.
2) The ability to hide the command window when you click on the Go button.

Really appreciate your help.

I only tested it on a a batch file with "echo hello" in it so it was pretty much instantaneous. Maybe your one requires the right environment to run in as the output i get is:
C:\Users\Mike\Desktop>script.bat
C:\Users\Mike\Desktop>script.bat
C:\Users\Mike\Desktop>script.bat
... times 1000's
