Windows 7 UAC Elevation - Issues with BATCH files

So I am trying to write some batch menus that uninstall, install, add registy entries, etc. by a batch menu. I am running into elevation issues.  I found a way to run elevation and prompts but then the issues I run into is that when elevation is accepted it calls the batch menu but it runs and closes.

The first file determines if the computer is 32 or 64 bit then launches the appropriate menu.

Set RegQry=HKLM\Hardware\Description\System\CentralProcessor\0
 
REG.exe Query %RegQry% > c:\DLI\checkOS.txt
 
Find /i "x86" < c:\DLI\CheckOS.txt > c:\DLI\StringCheck.txt
 
If %ERRORLEVEL% == 0 (
   

z:\DLI-SCRIPTS\DLI-MENU-32b.bat

) ELSE (
    Echo "This is 64 Bit Operating System"

    
z:\DLI-SCRIPTS\DLI-MENU-64b.bat

)

exit

Open in new window


@ECHO OFF
cls
REM.-- Prepare the Command Processor
SETLOCAL ENABLEEXTENSIONS
SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION

:menuLOOP

This is the code I used to elevate and it worked until I tried to call the other batch file
