Re: Multi-line menu with options selection via DOSKEY

Szecska the replace method was a way of get an input where choice was not present in the windows. I not remember from which version of windows it was included, maybe windows 8 ? The CHOICE command was introduced in MS-DOS 6 and is still available in MS-DOS 7 (Windows 95/98). In Windows NT 4, 2000 a...

Re: newbie min cmd window?

Ah yes, aGeman's is better, and can be even shorter because you do not even need args. @echo off &if "%~1" neq "MIN" start /MIN cmd /c "%~f0" MIN &exit /b start "" "E:\LaunchBox\Games\Big Fish Games\Launchers\Blackie.exe" start "my game" /WAIT "E:\12noon Display Changer\dc64.exe" -width=1280 -height...

Re: SOLUTION!

I figured out I that I wasn't defining :MakeReplace location and files at the end of the script... I suspected something like that :) On a side note, I would REALLY love an explanation or solution on how to run this more efficiently? Even the most efficient batch algorithm will be slow, vbs is noto...

thank you. I want to understand. I can use one cmd file to run another? also, they have to be separate files? thank you everyone for your help, I learned a lot. :D
No they don't, actually I've been thinking a bit about your question because I was wondering if you preferred only a single batch.

Re: Bathc - find and replace several strings (Quick as possible!)

I do not see what is wrong with that vbs, but If you do the main part in vbs, you might just as well do it all in vbs, I wonder why people wrap vbs scripts in a batch when both languages can do the job without each others help. Convention is that languages are physically separated from each other un...

Re: newbie min cmd window?

This may work, in the worst case the script will respond after 9 pings, script requires system to have a network driver installed or it will clog the CPU. @echo off start "my game" "E:\12noon Display Changer\dc64.exe" -width=1280 -height=720 /c "E:\LaunchBox\Games\Big Fish Games\Mystery Case Files -...

Re: Windows 10 Startup Loop CMD Regback backup

Ah sorry, I did not read you already had the backups, hope you can repair it like that. I wouldn't know howto because I switched to using software many larger companies use years ago because it was more versatile and reliable at the time and probably still.

Re: Windows 10 Startup Loop CMD Regback backup

Of course you have an array of backups of all your important data at your disposal, if not then your data is either not important or you have been very naïve. This happens to everybody, learn from it. I use a pirated version of acronis true image enterprise server. That can backup and restore any fi...

Re: Batch file to backup the documents folder on a continuing basis deleting old files while replacing with udated ones

The defaults are saved to a file 'defaults.cfg'. You could edit the file using notepad.

Or just copy the command line switches to a batch and run from there so the config file is not used.

Re: running any external command safely !

But perhaps your problem has something to do with the intermittent XP bug when a FOR /F IN() clause contains an unquoted/unescaped token delimiter . I think we can exclude that one. parent cmd /K regular for 'unescaped' works yes yes no yes no no no yes yes no no yes Although the problem arised in ...
