Re: Unzip or Unrar files with Batch file?

Fawers, Winrar will only be there if the user has installed it, right? I said that assuming he's got it. Where did you say that? I said that: There should be a file called "rar.exe" in your %programfiles%\WinRAR folder. CD (or PUSHD) (...) assuming he has got WinRAR installed already. to ...

Re: copy file & rename

Anyways, this should do it: @echo off set fname=car.vtx set pth= set n=1 :CopyLoop if [%n%]==[2] set fname2=%fname:~0,3%.dx80.%fname:~-3% if [%n%]==[3] set fname2=%fname2:80=90% copy [/b] %fname% "%pth%.\%fname2%" if [%n%]==[3] exit /b set /a n+=1 goto CopyLoop Just don't forget to: 1) set...

Can you run CMD as an administrator? If yes, do it and run the code again.

Re: copy file & rename

What is the path you want it to be copied to?

And is this .vtx file a binary file?

Re: Unzip or Unrar files with Batch file?

There should be a file called "rar.exe" in your %programfiles%\WinRAR folder.
CD (or PUSHD) your DOS window into it and type

Code: Select all

rar.exe /?

It'll return all the command line parameters to you.

Done that, you shall then tell us what exactly you want in your batch file.

I think so, but you'd have to escape the > sign.

Macros for CMD?

Hello everybody.
I'm going straight to the point.

I've never used a macro. Thus I don't know what it is, and how it works on an environment.

Tell me,
what are they used for?
how can I create them with DOSKEY?
once created, how do I use them?

DOSKEY /? couldn't provide me a straight answer.

Re: Convert current directory to DOS 8.3-friendly shortname

Does anyone know under what circumstances this wont work? Is this the best know way to reliably get the current directory as a short name? Thanks a million! Well I've managed to write a script to echo a short path to a .tmp file and start it with notepad. You can then copy the text and, right after...

Shouldn't it be "%%~si"?

Re: Need to add a space between filename and date

Whenever you want a file to have spaces on its name, you have to enclose it in quotes. Try this: ren c:\test\test.txt "test1 %date:~4,2%-%date:~7,2%-%date:~10%.txt" Personally, I see no reason to enclose the original filename (c:\test\test.txt) in quotes, but most people say that it's good...

Re: Variable won't expand

Though now that I think about it, the outer variable is what is failing to expand, not the inner variable - I need to correct my original post Did you try to check whether the parameters on the CALL command are working?

Re: Variable won't expand

Personally, I see no reason for your program to not work. It seems that your only problem is that variable one. Mate, I'd change this line for /l %%a in (0,1,%len%) do if "!str:~0,1!"=="!char!" set "str=!str:~1,%len%!" to this for /l %%a in (0,1,%len%) do if "%str:...
