I have to place a bunch of batch files on various servers for backup software installations. Is there a way to make the batch file run without specifying the path in each one? I've heard there's a way to do this but have been unsuccessful it finding out how.

You can use %~DP0 to facilitate this.

%~DP0\backup.bat would replace \\server1\share1\backup.bat.

The command causes the file to be run from its relative path.

Hope this helps,
