Find not working

#1 Post by Docfxit » 25 Oct 2019 18:32

I have a bat file with this code:

Code: Select all

type "%~dp0BootFixerTest.txt" |find /i "Windows installations: 0" >nul || goto :Done
This is the file called BootFixerTest.txt it's looking at:

Code: Select all

Scanning all disks for Windows installations.

Please wait, since this may take a while...

Successfully scanned Windows installations.
Total identified Windows installations: 0
The operation completed successfully.
The bat file is going to Pause when it should goto Done.

What can I change so it will recognize "Windows installations: 0" and goto Done?
