Batch file creation assistance

Hello Experts,

The following command will run from start menu:

\Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\Bginfo.exe \Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\mybgp.bgi /TIMER:00 /nolicprompt

However, I can't get it to run within a batch file:
@echo off
\Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\Bginfo.exe \Users\N21\Downloads\bgInfo\mybgp.bgi /TIMER:00 /nolicprompt

Can someone please show me?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The drive letter is missing, and there's no need for a "cd".
But assuming you're user "N21", you should use %UserProfile% anyway.
And as best practice in general, always put paths in double quotes.
"%UserProfile%\Downloads\bgInfo\Bginfo.exe" "%UserProfile%\Downloads\bgInfo\mybgp.bgi" /TIMER:00 /nolicprompt
