Re: Using for command starts/ends with double quote.

The cause and cure was explained in detail somewhere here in this forum, but my google-fu isn't strong enough (at least tonight). Maybe someone has bookmarked that or remembers why that goes wrong. If i remember right my workaround was, to just add an echo command and to not use delayedExpansion in...

Re: Can't parse arguments to variable

After a few attempts, I thought there was a limit to comparing strings containing complex double quotes or parentheses using IF command without error. For example, IF "/SetCustomHeaders "User-Agent: Opera/9.60 (Windows NT 6.0; U; en) Presto/2.1.1"" == "" Command... didn't work. So, I tried to write...

Re: Can't parse arguments to variable

The comparison with your IF line does not work out as you would expect. If you want to know what goes wrong then you have to evaluate the displayed errors. For successful troubleshooting, it has proven useful to switch on the echo and thus to find something in the last displayed lines that leads to...

Re: Using Double Pipe in IF command

Also, FOR /F %A IN ('"ECHO WOW"') DO (TIMEOUT 1 && ECHO WOW || ECHO OHH) Worked. I don't see any reason for the for-loop of that command, just use pure conditional-chaining ("&&") and conditional-execution operator ("||"): TIMEOUT 1 && ECHO WOW || ECHO OHH I'm also not fully sure how that for-loop ...

Re: Win10: Move cursor position to 0,0

Antonio did something like that before using Windows 8.1: https://www.dostips.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6760 Outdated.PNG The codes we used before(timeout 1 > con) moved cursor position to 1,0 So you should have used a script to lift the cursor position up one line to move the cursor to 0,0 @ec...

Re: Using Double Pipe in IF command

I don't think, that WiVi71 tries to use the conditional-execution operator "||" as a conditional-OR operator. @WiVi71 In all the examples you gave, you have used the character COMMA (','). That character is a delimiter and must be escaped, so the following might help you: IF . EQU ^, DISM || ECHO P...

I found that " FOR /F %A IN ('"TIMEOUT 1 > CON"') DO REM " command shows a different output than "TIMEOUT 1 > CON" command(In Windows 10). FOR_TIMEOUT.PNG The command moved the cursor position to 4,0 Also, several special characters were displayed on the screen. So, this code moves cursor position t...
