Re: Setting up scripting environment

This should work - it did on my system: test.cmd: START "Window 1" CD /D C:\Directory1 START "Window 2" CD /D C:\Directory2 REM ... ECHO Profit! Read the whole thread. There is a little more to it then just open another cmd.exe instance and changing to a directory. It looks like...

Re: Creating a script to gather PC information - to assist those asking for help

@Douglas As you can see I use NET SESSION here. Although I don't know since when NET is available. ComputerHope says the NET command has been available since Windows 95. The different syntax listings (<--2000, XP, Vista-->) imply that the SESSION subcommand was introduced with XP, and that its usag...

Re: Creating a script to gather PC information - to assist those asking for help

If the question is "Am I elevated right now," then fsutil /? is a good quick check - - it requires elevated status even to view the help. This check is outdated. I know it requires elevation on Win7 but I also know it doesn't on Win10. I can't say anything about the behavior on Win8/8.1. ...

Re: Creating a script to gather PC information - to assist those asking for help

Do you have elevated rights on Win8.1 even if the script reports that you don't have? What is an easy test to show that? If the question is "Am I elevated right now," then fsutil /? is a good quick check - - it requires elevated status even to view the help. If the question is "Can I...

Re: “Remote command failed with exit status 127”

. . .it is returning “Remote command failed with exit status 127”. However, if I am hard coding the value of %var% in cd as cd c:\X\Y\Z\a.b.c rather than passing as cd c:\X\Y\Z\%var%, script is executing fine I tried couple of ways to handle path setting and call uninstaller.exe after changing the ...

Re: Creating a script to gather PC information - to assist those asking for help

@Douglas I've noticed that all the results posted so far report that delayed expansion is disabled for both the system and the user. That seems unlikely, and I think it's because the test is backwards. That's something I already answered to you. You can enable it using setlocal EnableDelayedExpansi...

Re: The topic is to reach a value, in a batch file with only one setted variable

What i have done is to delete the tokens code expression and the call. I cannot pass the "eol=C" parameter "option". The output with my cmd environment has additional two lines. >echo C:\Users\etc. >echo C:\Users\etc. To skip that option i have to use the parameter "eol=C&q...

Re: The topic is to reach a value, in a batch file with only one setted variable

I have to improve my contributions. When you write, try to use short, simple sentences. Use literal terms, and avoid figures of speech like "long as a river". Those are okay in conversation, but in technical writing, it is better to be clear than to be creative. Many fluent English speake...

I started to wrote in english sentences that fit my issue. I am not exhausted from the confrontation, i just hope the pain to read is not an ake. It's not an ache, but it is difficult. What is your native language? There are many international users here. Maybe one of them can help you ask your que...

Re: Re :File Transfer

It depends on what you mean by "remote". If the servers are on your network, then the normal utilities (MOVE, COPY, XCOPY, ROBOCOPY) should work. I think the first three require that you have a drive letter mapped to a share on the remote machine. ROBOCOPY lets you specify a drive letter o...

@aGerman, I trust your translation more than Google's. Can you help us out here? @ledlightjungled, It looks like you are trying to use arrays. Batch files do not have native support for array data structure. If you want to, you can create your own, and we can show you how. Square brackets ([]) are n...
