Hi All,

I am trying to execute a batch file in my wise script.

I am copying the files from the network install location to a local dir in C:\
Ex: Set variable TestDIR to C:\Test
I then want to run the batch file say abc.bat
In my script I have tried using Execute Program command

.EXE Path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe
Command Line: "%TestDIR%\abc.bat" -silent
Default Directory: %TestDIR%
Checked the box - Wait for program to Exit

When I compile and execute this script:
I only see a command window on the screen with the cursor blinking on C:\TestDIR>

The batch file does not execute.

If I go to the command prompt on the same machine and open a command prompt.
Go to the TestDir and type abc.bat - silent (it executes).

Please Help me on how to excute the batch file through wise script.

Thanks in advance.

methinks you want to do cmd.exe /w (close cmd window) and remove the -silent after the bat file

Thanks for the reply,

The /w switch is not working for me. Also the batch file has to install silently (Batch file installs the IBM RAD iFix, It has to install silently).

Use /C command

C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe /c "%TestDIR%\abc.bat"
