Hi,

I have a source file named 'Get_SubVar_Yr.log' that has these three lines:

Processing...
 ALL.Act_Yr=FY18
getsubstvar completed successfully

I'm trying to set a variable equal to the value after the = on the 2nd line.  So my variable named 'theyear' would equal 'FY18'.

for /f "tokens=1,2 skip=1 delims==," %%A IN ("D:\Get_SubVar_Yr.log") DO @echo %%B

Open in new window


I'm not sure how to resolve the 'delims==' part to start.  Is that possible?
Also do/should I need to skip the first line and did I get that correct?
Will the 3rd line hose anything up?
Is For /f   the correct method in the first place?

is there a way to add to the windows credential manager via the command prompt
I'm not referring to cmdkey but the actual windows credential manager apparently they are not the same thing.
When I use cmdkey /generic:TERMSRV/server /user:username /pass:password
it works fine it I run mstsc /v:server  
but if I run it from the desktop by clicking on a shortcut it prompts me for the password; however, if I put the credentials in windows credential manager I do not get the prompt

so, is there a a command to add a username and password to windows credential manager ?
I don't want any user interaction I want to run it through a bat script or psexec or something.
Thanks!

Hi Experts,
I'm looking for either code or script that will do the following
loop thru all files of specific folder, not including sub folders (folder should only contain CSV files).
delete all the contents of those files, but do not delete the file itself.
Thanks

I have a few thousand files and the processed equivalent files in a folder  ( Windows Server 2016 machine).  But there are a  few files which missed the processing
An example list will be
Doc1
Doc1.Timestamp.lck
Doc2
Doc2.Timestamp.lck
Doc3
Doc4
Doc4.timestamp.lck

IN the sample, Doc3 is not processed. How can I get the list of   files not processed  when the list is huge?

Windows Batch file to count a set "N" number of files from a single source folder,merged multiple files together into a single output file that contains <= N number of records, and move processed files to a save directory folder.

Request for a window bat file that can be run from command/CMD prompt.  Windows 7 environment.

Windows Batch file to copy a set "N" number of files from a single source folder to an output file, move processed records to a single save folder.  The single source directory may contain 1 up to a million files.  
Need to copy 200 files at a time to a newfile_N+ that should contain <= 200 files per newfile_N+ until all records have been read and processed.

Input file extension: *.hl7
Output file newfile_N+ extension: *.txt

Source directory - C:\temp\source
Destination directory - C:\temp\output\newfile_N+.txt
Destination directory - C:\temp\processed

For the purpose of demonstration I have attached (5) sample hl7 files.
Each newfile_N+.txt file should contain <= 2 records per file.

Prior to kicking off the batch file.  All (5) source files would be all be in the (C:\temp\source) directory.
Upon completion of the batch program running.  The expected output once the bat file has run would result in the following:

C:\temp\source
      dir: contains no files *.hl7 files
      
C:\temp\output
 dir: newfile.txt, newfile1.txt, newfile2.txt
      Note: Each of these files contains <=2 records each, max is 2 records per file
      ==> newfile.txt …

Anyone have a good solution to rename recursively all the files in a directory tree that begin in _ or contain ()!$% etc?  I am trying to start a massive FTP upload but it fails due to the names.  I have already used CMD to recursively remove temp files and such but the ren command doesn't work recursively.

Windows Batch file to move a set "N" number of files from a single source folder to a destination folder.  The single source directory may contain 1 up to a million files.  Need to copy 200 files at a time to a destination folder_N+ that should contain <= 200 files per destination directory.

Once all the files are moved to the destination folders, would like to merge the multiple files per individual destination folder into one single file. (copy *.hl7 newfile.hl7)

File extension: *.hl7

Destination directory - C:\temp\outputN+

For the purpose of demonstration I have attached (5) sample hl7 files.  
These (5) files would be all be in the (C:\temp\source) directory.

Hi Experts,

I have the following command running as a batch file (on task scheduler) in an hourly bases.
xcopy "C:\Users\bfuchs\Dropbox\Caspio\caspiotables.zip" f:\Conversion\Caspio\ /y

Open in new window


would like to have this running in another pc as well as a backup.

However would prefer to have the following modifications

1- To first check for date/time that file f:\Conversion\Caspio\caspiotables.zip when it was modified, if it was not within the hour then perform the task.
2- Get an email informing it was done (so i know the 1st one failed).

Thanks in advance.

Hi

I am in search for dos command which I need to include in the batch file. The code I am looking for is to copy excel files from a Upload folder and paste it in the archive sub folder(which sits in Upload folder). Each time I run batch file, it should copy files from Upload folder and paste in archive folder. If the files with same name exist inside archive folder, the dos command should over write only those files with latest files, leaving other files as they are.

Hope you get my point.

Any questions please let me know.

Thank you

Hi,

I am searching for a dos command which can cut files from a given folder and paste those files in to an Archive folder which sits along side with the files need to be uploaded into. There are folders with space in its name. I have to insert this command in a bat file. I use below code for my other tasks and its working fine, but it does not do cut and paste, it does copy and paste.

@echo off
setlocal

echo Start Copy

set SOURCE_DIR=C:\Nat\Reports\Reports
set DEST_DIRS="X:\", "N:\Reports\Production Repts\Reports"
set FILENAMES_TO_COPY="2018All Projects_New.xlsx","2017Report_New.xlsx"

pushd "%SOURCE_DIR%"

for %%F in (%FILENAMES_TO_COPY%) do (

    for %%D in (%DEST_DIRS%) do (
        echo file "%%~F" to "%%~D"
        xcopy /Y "%%~F" "%%~D"
    )

)

popd

echo. Done.
exit /b

Thank you

Hi Experts,

I have this question after resolving the following

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29109077/How-to-concatenate-all-files-from-one-folder-into-one-ignoring-headers.html#a42623555

How can I modify the command to

Have a user that started saving long file names and folders creating problems on a 2012 Server. File path has exceeded 280+ in length luckily there are only 5 folders affected. Problem is I created a virtual directory to the folder using Subst command, however I get this error when I try to rename it.
subst error
I tried Subst in administrator mode but the drive doesn't show, a known issue.
I tried without administrator mode and the mapped drive shows however I get the above error.
Downloaded the gui interface get the same error above.

I have one folder "destination" where I have files and their time stamps (created, modified) I would like to preserve when I overwrite a few of those files with updated version of those files.

example

Destination Folder 
File.mp4- Created 01/01/01 (size 500mb)

Source Folder 
File.nmp4 - Created 12/12/12 (size 4.00gb)

Open in new window

I overwrite the file in the Destination folder with the new updated version from the Source Folder but keeping the original file in the destination folder timestamps

End Result (new overwrite file in the destination folder with original file timestamps)

Destination Folder
File.mp4 - Created 01/01/01 (size 4.00gb)

Open in new window


I have written a batch file to move the file as so

 
robocopy "Source" "Destination" /E

Open in new window


and this handles my overwrites and moving of my files perfectly, but I haven't found a way to preserves timestamps. I am looking for command-line so I can implement it in a batch file. Any help will be appreciated. I been reading flags for robocopy etc but maybe I'm reading it wrong or something but I haven't figured it out yet.

Hello,

How do you create an executable file to open a non-executable file?

I just began using a Corsair K95 RGB keyboard (which includes 18 programmable G-keys) along with its software (CorsairUtilityEngineSetup_2.24.50_release). While assigning macros to the G-keys, I discovered that while the software does allow you to run an executable file (*.exe *.bat *.cmd), there is no option to open a simple non-executable file (eg .txt, .xls, .ahk, .png, etc).

That seemed a bit odd to me but it was confirmed by Corsair tech support so during the conversation I asked about possible workarounds and the response was that I could create an .exe or .cmd file to open the desired non-executable file.

So for example, suppose you want to open the following Excel file:

    C:\Users\UserName\FolderName\FileName.xlsm

How would you create an .exe or .cmd file to do that?

Thanks

Hi Experts,
I have the following batch file
@echo off
setlocal

set  tm=%time: =0%
set  tm=%tm::=%
set dt=%date:~10,4%%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%

copy  C:\Users\bfuchs\Dropbox\Caspio\CaspioTables.zip  h:\CaspioTablesDaily\CaspioTables%dt%%tm:~0,4%.zip

copy  F:\Data\SkilledNursingVisitNotestbl.mdb  h:\AccessTablesDaily\Skilled_Nursing_Tables%dt%%tm:~0,4%.mdb

Open in new window


Would like to have for the second file (the access file), to zip it into the destination, instead of just copying.

How can I accomplish that?

fyi- I have windows 7.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Experts,

We have windows server 2008 along with multipal users they have only remote desktop rights & i dont want assign administrator rights,

but a there is a software which need administrator rights (run as administrator) permission to execute from users, we had manage till startup time manually to run as a administrator with password but now there is more than 50 users that's why i can't manage manually.

I need a batch file which have store administrator password, I'll paste that batch to every user Desktop & locate the software path to in batch file run as administrator.



Path Example :-
for user1
D:/user1/Gm_4.1.1.1_05082018_PAN/EnhanceT.ext

for user2
D:/user2/Gm_4.1.1.1_05082018_PAN/EnhanceT.ext

for user3
D:/user3/NEW_4.1.1.1_12082018_PAN_A/EnhanceT.ext

for user4
D:/user3/Gm_4.1.1.1_05082018_PAN/EnhanceT.ext

for user5
D:/user5/Gm_4.1.1.1_05082018_PAN_5/EnhanceT.ext

for user6

Hi
I need to rename some files

This works if I cd to the directory first

cd \s z:\Path\with\files\in
ren *.jpeg *.jpg

Open in new window



How do I write a simple bat file that takes the parent folder as a parameter and recursively  renames the files skipping over if the files exist

so if a folder had both MyCat.jpeg and mycat.jpg  it won't over right mycat.jpg (Windows file names are not case sensitive) and won't prompt

I am trying to deploy local windows firewall rules to several separate Windows 7 laptops.  We have Novell NetWare in our environment; hence, using Group Policy from a WIndows Domain to propagation to the devices, is not a n option (unfortunately).

I have discovered that if one executes a batch file, with the command:

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="NetScaler Gateway Plug-in" dir=in action=allow profile=public program="C:\Program Files\Citrix\Secure Access Client\nsload.exe" protocol=TCP enable=yes

Open in new window


that works really well ( https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/947709/how-to-use-the-netsh-advfirewall-firewall-context-instead-of-the-netsh ); but, the problem is that when executing the above command you need to run the command prompt as an administrator.

DOS_1
As you can see if the user does not have admin privileges or does not know the administrator password, then the only other thing I can think is to create 2 batch files and manually copy the files to the user's laptop.  1 file will have the  'runas' command to use the local administrator user account and then to trigger another batch file with the changes:

runas /user:administrator C:\data\mybatchfile.bat

Open in new window


https://www.windows-commandline.com/windows-runas-command-prompt/

So the batch file: mybatchfile.bat will actually have the code that adds the firewall rule(s):

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="NetScaler Gateway Plug-in" dir=in action=allow profile=public program="C:\Program Files\Citrix\Secure Access Client\nsload.exe" protocol=TCP enable=yes

Open in new window


Question1:  Is there a way to streamline the deployment approach because our users will require these local windows firewall rules and these users are not administrators on their company laptops.  

Question2:  Is there a way to elevate permissions for a batch file as the script begins executing?  So you will not be prompted for a password?

Transpose () filenames from DIR & list them to txt or excel file either via CMD or Macro
The DIR contains sub folders, with files majorly of .tiff extension.

There is a logic while listing them and transpose.
Lets say there are 10 files in a sub folder. We manually rename a particular image in the example"0001_0001.tif" with additional "0001" which reflects as"0001_0001_0001.tif".


0001_0001_0001.tif
0002_0002.tif
0003_0001.tif
0004_0002.tif
0006_0001_0001.tif
0007_0005.tif
0007_0009.tif
0008_0010.tif

Requirement: The file names should be transposed and listed as per the breaker provided ie additional "0001.tif" . The output will look like.

DIR / Subfolder/0001_0001_0001.tif  0002_0002.tif 0003_0001.tif 0004_0002.tif

Thanks!

I am attempting to write an automated uninstall string, same app, multiple versions. I would have preferred to do this via PowerShell but apparently their servers are so old only some of them support it. So I have found a command line way to find the uninstall strings from the registry, but I am not sure how to pass the string to an execute inside of a batch.

reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" /s /f "OpenSSL" | findstr /B ".*UninstallString"
reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" /s /f "OpenSSL" | findstr /B ".*UninstallString"

When I run this statement, I get an error that says "%%G was unexpected at this time":
for /F "tokens=2 delims==" %%G in ('WMIC /NODE:"myserver" Service WHERE "Name = 'myservice'" GET State/value') do set CURSVCSTATE=%%G

But, when I run just the WMIC statement, it works fine:
WMIC /NODE:"myserver" Service WHERE "Name = 'myservice'" GET State/value

I'm pretty sure it has to do with the single quote terminating the WMIC command to early, but I can't figure out how to fix it!
