    Thats the thing it opens with a notecard, which you edit to sign in..



    What i'm trying to get working is this file http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?6a...


  • kammy86 Jan 31, 2008

    The batch file is suppose to open and load, and allow you to type in a username password, to connect w/o a client to second life.. and permit 'master' control, the console basically being a slave to whatever you set it for. and performing the command given.. etc.. i have a screenshot available of what it is suppose to do on the net, but some of my friends are having trouble and it keeps shutting down for them...

  • kammy86 Jan 31, 2008

    basically i want it to stay open... it preforms everything else..

  • kammy86 Jan 31, 2008

    tried that it still didn't do it.. adding

    cmd start TestClient.exe --first Jerry --last Republic --pass lar --contact "email@gmail.com" --masterkey "d6bdd01d-f171-4cc1-b297-1f2e6ee98bba"

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.

that should do it.

    did you put the word cmd all by its self

    on a line such as



    echo off

    cmd



    now if you call another exe within then that exe can do anything including exit/close the window.

    try it a litte at a time , it is likely the exe that is exiting the window and may have to be changed.

Right click on the file and select edit. This should load it in a text editor.
Now, simply read what it does.

You don't say what the batch file is for, so it's hard to say what you should look for in the file.

Can anyone explain how batch file works?


This is kind of tricky not knowing how familiar you are with the commandline, but a batch file simply contains single commands and executes them in order (usually from top to bottom). A batch file (or bash script in Linux) can be very helpful if you have to run certain commands over and over again, so you don't have to write them by hand.

An Example: You want to store your network settings in a text file.
You open the command prompt (WIN+R) and type this line:
mkdir C:\Network
Then you type this line:
ipconfig /all > C:\Network\ipconfig.txt
The first line creates a folder on your C: drive called "Network"
The second line runs the ipconfig command and saves it as a text file in that new folder.

To make a batch file, you open Notepad and insert the two lines. Then save it as "IP.bat" (make sure not to save it as "IP.bat.txt"! This is the most common mistake. If you save a file from Notepad, select "All Files" in the "Save As Type" dialog. Otherwise it will save it as a .txt file and you have to rename it later.)

Now you can double click the batch file and it runs all commands in the file.

You can also see the danger. If you run a batch file and don't know what it really does, it can destroy your whole system. So make sure you understand it and/or get it from a trustworthy source.

A nice example of how complex a batch file can be is here:
AllHelp.bat

Copy the content into a text file, save it as AllHelp.bat, run it and it will create a webpage with all available DOS commands.

Hope this helps - otherwise let me know if you have specific questions.
Enjoy!

Tip

Batch downloading multiple web pages


Looking for a way to download multiple web pages, images or other files from web sites without using a browser?

First, download and install URL2File Windows Application, which is the program we'll be using in this example (URL2File Windows Application is a product of Chami.com). URL2File can retrieve and save the content of a given World Wide Web URL to a local file. So, to retrieve the web page at http://www.chami.com/tips/ and save it to a local file named tips.htm, run the following command from a Windows Command Prompt/DOS Box:URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/ tips.htmNote the format of the above command: URL2File followed by the web page/file address and the name of the file that you want to save the content as.The next step is to create a batch file that can call URL2File for eachfile you need to download. A Windows batch file is a text file with alist of commands, usually with the .BAT extension.Let's assume that there are three files named file1.zip, file2.zip and file3.zip at http://www.chami.com/tips/ that you need to download. To create a batch file to download above files:
  • Open Windows Notepad
  • Enter following three commands into the blank notepad (one command per file to be downloaded):URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/file1.zip file1.zip
    URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/file2.zip file2.zip
    URL2File http://www.chami.com/tips/file3.zip file3.zip
  • Save the notepad file with a name of your choice followed by .BAT ("download.bat" for example)
Now run "download.bat" from your Windows Command Prompt/DOS Box by typing:downloadand hitting ENTER. The newlycreated batch file will call URL2File three times for each of the threefiles and sequentially download them for you. To download other files,simply modify the batch file and run it again.

How to create simple batch files


Creating a batch file
MS-DOS users
Microsoft Windows and other users

MS-DOS users
To create a basic batch file in MS-DOS, follow the below steps that give you an example of how to create a basic batch file.

  1. Open an MS-DOS command window or get to MS-DOS. Additional information about doing this can be found on document CHDOS.
  2. At the MS-DOS prompt, type: edit test.bat and press enter.
  3. If typed properly, you should now be in a blue screen. Within the screen, type:

    pause
    dir c:\windows
    dir c:\windows\system

  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type: notepad and press enter.
  4. 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

  5. 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.
  6. 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.

What is the mean auto exe c bat in dos files??


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.
ECHO
Example: @ECHO OFF
This optional command will suppress the display of subsequent commands while the AUTOEXEC.BAT file is being executed

What is best website to show me dos programming examples.. want to creat an exe file to pick up text files from a directory and send them to a printer whenever a new file appears .(without pc...


you mean a .bat file that can be run when a new file is added. let me see if i can find a good site for you.
http://www.chebucto.ns.ca/~ak621/DOS/BatBasic.html
My advice is get a good book! One that stands out in my mind is "The Waite Group's MS-DOS Bible" (1991?) This will take you through using the command shell and batch files through how the DOS filesystem is structured, memory managment under DOS, an explaination of how the OS loads a program up to wrting little progams of you own using machine language and debug.
Another great book is Dan Gookin's "Advanced MS-DOS Batch File Programming" that will also teach you something about operating systems in general in a nice, unformal tone.
DOS also comes with a BASIC interpreter called QBASIC, that can teach you the funamentals of programming while augmenting your shell scripts and doing things that plain batch files just can't do.

MS-Dos running


give this a run...
put the file in your base drive (in C:/)
Start>Run> "c:">*insertfilename WITH ".BAT" at the end*

It will either work or just fail and leave the window open with whatever was displayed on the screen(hopefully, unless the bat has a "close window" command in the end of the file)
