I a running a batch fille.
The batch file has some output. So, I want to save the output to a file (Also error messages, also "batch questions").
BUT, I also want to see the output, so I can answer the "batch questions" and also monitor the batch progress.

Thanks zmau

You need a 3rd-party tool called tee. Any implementation will do, for example this one: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/Wintee.shtml

Using that, you can do
   batchfile 2>&1 | tee LogFile.txt
Which should redirect errors and any other output to both the screen and the log file.
