I am writing a batch file to bring together the various exe running and file copy procedures of installing an application. One of the stages involdes adding the entry ;
esri_sde 5151/tcp        #Reference to Grouch SDE
at the end of c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services
Is there a simple way of scripting this?

another thing, to do the same for every location changes services to the full path:
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\services

thanks.

Or better to deal with c:\winnt, c:\windows etc:

@echo off
set services="%SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\services"
find "esri_sde" %services% || echo esri_sde 5151/tcp        #Reference to Grouch SDE >> %services%

That will check using find if the entry is in services and if not add it.

No problem... obviously it will need to be run with suitable admin rights to the file... but easy is good in my eyes!
