That is a pretty broad question. What programming language did you write the program in? What version of DOS are you using?

If you run a DOS operating system you would certainly know the version rather than guessing it. Just to make sure - don't you run Windows?

Okay that means your command interpreter is command.com and command extensions are not available for you. Now it would be really of interest to see the Batch script that closed erroneously (or at least the piece of code that reproduces this behavior). Otherwise I don't see any chance to help you because anything else would be like crystal-ball gazing.

...and then?

But seriously, usually when scripts immediately close after you open them, it's because they broke and threw an error that you weren't fast enough to see, which is why you should always run the script from the command prompt instead of double-clicking it.
