Hello, I need to figure out a way to have a .bat file run four execuatbles at the same time. They are independant of each other but in order to speed up the process it would need to execute them all at the same time. Just not having any luck finding an answer on the web. Any help would be apppreciated.

Use the START command, as in:

@echo off
start "" "executable1.exe"
start "" "executable2.exe"
start "" "executable3.exe"
start "" "executable4.exe"

Open in new window

A number of options available for the START command, do START /? at a command line to see them, if needed.
