Command Prompt inquiry

Hello Experts,
Just wanted to get myself educated on the items that i was asked to run and create a schedule task in our server.
Would you be able to shed some light or links on what this command parameters actually do and the best approach when creating  schedule task using the command mentioned.
Anyway here is the command...

C:\AppScript\run - c all

...on C:\AppScript\ folder there are our files...
C:\AppScript\run.bat
C:\AppScript\run.conf
C:\AppScript\run.jar
C:\AppScript\run.sh

Can you please help me understand....
1.0 Does the dos command runs all the files under the folder?
2.0 If Yes(on 1.0) , does it have a sequence ( i meant run one at a time)? If Yes what is it?
3.0 If no sequesnce, does it just run everything the same time without any dependencies.?
4.0 Lastly , if i am to create a scheduled task do i have to run each file (e.g. run.bat, run.jar, run.conf and run.sh) spearately (or create one start a program entry on each)?

Thanks,
Microsoft DOSWindows Server 2008

We will need to see the contents of the BAT file, that is what should be executed, so to tell what will happen depends on what it contains.

Hello Guys thanks for the response.

Hello Korbus, there are no other files (i.e. run.exe) on the directory other than the ones mentioned on the list.  

Hello DTHConsulting, Thanks for the explanation.

Hello Ve30fa, Thanks and as for the scheduled task i created one action...
C:\AppScript\run

And then added argument...
-c all.

I reckon this should be sufficient as for schduling that task  But i guess i'll know tomorrow if its succesfull.
