Re: Error in If logic

Hello venkimuck, 1) The first if condition itself is not true, so it should not even go into the ( section under the if condition. That's is the problem, it's not important if the first if condition is true. The whole section is expanded, and the syntax must be correct. Try if "%var1:~1,8%"...

Re: Error in If logic

Hello venkimuck,

you got this error if var1 is empty/not exist.

The batch logic expands

Code: Select all

if %var1:~1,8% NEQ Disabled (

to

Code: Select all

if ~1,8 NEQ Disabled (


hope it helps

Re: Find an IP address

Hi locbtran,

you can use ipconfig.
But in batch files you can get trouble if you are running XP, because Microsoft does not know how line endings should work.
Ipconfig print LF CR instead of CR LF.

Under Vista it works correct.

Hi ScumPuppy, I suppose there is no simple way. Your problem is, that you only want to wait until the program is opened not until it is closed. Therefore the "start /wait" can't work. The solution have to be start the program, and the poll until it is opened completly. The polling could be...
