    Anyone have a good way to run exes from a batchfile in XP asynchronously? I use to be able to use commands like: start notepad.exe start calc.exe but that does not work if I'm using the batch file from an iexpress package. Any other ways you know to get both exes running at the same time using a batch file?

    in the .bat put file1.exe | file2.exe | file3.exe and the 3 files will be started simultaniously whereas file1.exe file2.exe file3.exe would cause file2.exe to be started after file1.exe closed. [edit] haven't tested this using an iexpress package though. [/edit]

    Cool, your script works as just a batch file, but iexpress messes it up (I think it does werid things with running from the present working directory). With a few mods I got it to work: echo Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") > file.vbs echo WshShell.Run("putty.exe") >> file.vbs echo WshShell.Run("vncviewer.exe") >> file.vbs wscript file.vbs pause Thanks, I'll be sure to give you shouts in the video. If anyone has a easier way give me a yell.

    This seems to work, not sure if it will with your IExpress package because I don't know how to test it: echo Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") >> file.vbs echo WshShell.Run("%windir%\notepad.exe") >> file.vbs echo WshShell.Run("%windir%\system32\calc.exe") >> file.vbs file.vbs The idea is to use commands to create a VBScript file that will do the launching, then execute that synchrously. Hope this was helpful, as I have found your tut's helpful
