Re: MS-Dos running a file..
I didn't look at your file but adding the word cmd or command within the file first , that will keep a window open . just issue the word exit to close cleanly. or call to another batch file be sure to turn echo on and off when needed.

Hello. batt files or batch files are used by your operating system to run a list of commands created by ms-dos or by you. A good example of a batch file is the autoexec.bat which is loaded each time the computer boots to MS-DOS. Batch files are like shortcuts on your desktop, when they are run they pass information through the command line and these sets of instructions run commands or programs on your computer. Did that help?
Open an MS-DOS command window or get to MS-DOS. Additional information about doing this can be found on document CHDOS.
At the MS-DOS prompt, type: edit test.bat and press enter.
If typed properly, you should now be in a blue screen. Within the screen, type:
pause dir c:\windows dir c:\windows\system
Once the above three lines have been typed in, click File and choose exit; when prompted to save, click "Yes." Users who do not have a mouse cursor can accomplish this same task by pressing ALT+F to access the file menu, then pressing "X" to exit, and pressing enter to save changes.
Once you are back at the MS-DOS prompt, type: test and press enter. This will execute the test.bat file and begin running the file. Because the first line is pause, you will first be prompted to press a key. Once you press a key the batch file will run line-by-line; in this case, listing the files in the windows and windows\system directories.
If you wish to add more lines to this batch file you would simply type "edit test.bat" to edit the file again. Additional information about the MS-DOS edit command can be found on our edit command page. Some versions of MS-DOS and bootable diskettes may not have the edit command; if this is the case, you would either need to obtain the edit.com file to access this file or use the copy con command.
Microsoft Windows and other users A Windows user can still use the above MS-DOS steps if they wish to create a batch file. If, however, you're more comfortable using Microsoft Windows or your operating system, you can use any text editor, such as Notepad or Wordpad, to create your batch files, as long as the file extension ends with .bat. In the below example we use the Windows notepad to create a batch file.
Once notepad is open, type the below lines in the file or copy and paste the below lines into notepad.
@echo off echo Hello this is a test batch file pause dir c:\windows
Click File and click Save; browse to where you want to save the file. For the file name, type "test.bat", and if your version of Windows has a "Save as type" option, choose "All files", otherwise it will save as a text file. Once all of this has been done click the Save button and exit notepad.
Now, to run the batch file, simply double-click or run the file like any other program. Once the batch file has completed running it will close the window automatically.
An AUTOEXEC.BAT file contains MS-DOS commands which are executed automatically when a
Personal Computer boots. This file is usually
located in the root directory of the hard drive or floppy from which the computer boots
(or starts) up. The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is
used to set various default settings and to run programs that should be executed upon startup. Below
you will find a list of executable statements (commands) that typically go into an AUTOEXEC.BAT file,
along with explanations their.
The AUTOEXEC.BAT file is one form of a batch file, and it is used to automate functions in
MS-DOS. In their simplest form,
batch files contain MS-DOS commands (batch file language) which includes commands for such things
as loops and execution branches and the like.
Example: @ECHO OFF
This optional command will suppress the display of subsequent commands while the AUTOEXEC.BAT file is being executed
UNRAR THE ARCHIVE TO TAKE ON A FOLDER BY NAME "R290" ON THE DISK C: (C: \ R290) AND THEN FOLLOW THE NEXT STEPS:
First-first we need to verify that do not exist on the disk C: folder (C: \ Adjustment Program \) And the entry registration: (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ EPSON \ PTSG \). You can remove them manually or by running the executable file LIMPIAR.BAT MS-DOS.
Second, we modify the date of the operating system: (DAY: (1)-MONTH: (4)-YEAR: (2008) 01-04-2008. If you run the file LIMPIAR.BAT only verify that changes in the date has been made.
- Third. Ready! Run the application and select the button "PERSONAL ADJUSTMENT" and select the option you want to change, the most common case, RESETER INK PAD WASTED!

Explanation: When you boot up DOS, you are placed at what is commonly called the
"C: prompt", where you can type commands or run programs. The part of DOS that
reads what you type and executes commands is called the command interpreter, which
is stored in the file "COMMAND.COM". This interpreter is loaded when you start
the system or when you start an MS-DOS session under Windows 95, and is also reloaded in
some cases when you finish running a program. In this case, the system was unable to find
COMMAND.COM and therefore halted the system.
Make sure that COMMAND.COM is in the C:\ root directory, or if it somewhere else, that
there is a line in AUTOEXEC.BAT that reads "COMSPEC=X:\PATH" where
"X:\PATH" is wherever COMMAND.COM resides.
Edit the PATH command in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file, if you are trying to run a command in
another directory that should be accessible from anywhere.
please send me a feed back if this works out thnk you.
1) to edit registry go to start / select run and type regedit. from there you are able to edit registry values. BEWARE because editing registry values may make your windows stop working. you should know what you are doing and you are responsible of the cosnequenses
2) a bat file is a batch file.
Batch files are files that allow MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows users to create a lists of commands and/or programs to run once the batch file has been executed.
3) create a file called autorun.inf and type inside
save your file and write it in the cd you want to autorun
the file.exe part must be replaced with the executable you want to load when your CD autoruns
