Hello Experts,

I am running a command process on Windows7 that executes a BAT file.  At different points in the execution, I would like to change the process priority.  A simple way to accomplish this task within the command file is what I'm looking for.  Thanks

Thanks for the response

That looks sort of correct, except I need to embed it in a BAT file and have it execute on the process that is running the BAT file.  I don't necessarily know what the process name will be, so it justs need to know that it operates against the process that is issuing it.

Also, some comparision between the numeric values and the high/medium/low etc. settings in Task Manager would be appreciated.

Thanks for the comment, but I don't control the launch of the bat file.  I can add commands to it, but have no control on how it is initiated.

Kind of funny - the expert pointed back to a repost of this same question.  Sort of cheating, sort of not.

I say - give him the points
