I’m running a windows 7 pc and I would like to run a gpupdate / force script.  I used a text file and typed in gpupdate /force and saved it as GP.bat.  When I double click the on the bat file it just keeps running the gpupdate /force command continuously and rapidly.  How do I get it to run once and exit the command promt?
