    Need help on Windows Batch Programming

    Hi code gurus,

    I've a little bit problem in batch script... I would appreciate if anyone of gurus here able to help.

    Here is the code

    C:\>type ie.bat
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    C:\Program.exe
    EXIT
    Everytime I launch the batch file, the cmd windows is still there. I just want to run the program and close the cmd windows. I've tried to put EXIT at the end of the code, but it doesn't change anything.

    Thanks code gurus in advance.

    Here's a link that talks about a similar situation you are having. If you're running XP then this might point you in the right direction.

    Launch the program with start internal command
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    start C:\Program.exe
    EXIT
    • Make it run.
    • Make it right.
    • Make it fast.

    Don't hesitate to rate my post.

    Jump,
    You have to rename your .bat file with the .cmd extension. The old .bat does not work in XP. So,, if your file was named SONY.BAT, then rename it to SONY.CMD and it will work fine...)

    Thanks viperbyte for your help. I've renamed script.bat to script.cmd. I still can launch the program but the command prompt still open.
