i have some programs / files on the computer or drobo, which i usually open or launch at the same time to be able to switch between them etc.
do you know how i can make a batch file, ideally for win7 64bit, which can launch them all together
and launch some as admin.
so far, the best i can do is to make a desktop folder, and paste shortcuts to them, and then open each one in turn, or right-click and say run as admin for some of them, but it’s a bit tedious
sometimes i seem to be able to select a bunch of them, and launch with enter, but other times only 1 of the selected items actually opens, so im not quite sure what im doing wrong, and thought maybe i can just paste in the exact paths into a command line text fille and just run it as a .bat file?
I never figured out how to force elevate (run as administrator) from the command prompt though.
It should run in the context the launching batch file is in, so if the batch file is Run as Administrator then spawned processes should also.
You’re welcome. I’m old-school and try to minimize dependencies whenever possible. I currently have a batch + VBScript combination to launch (mainly because I need to look for a window and wait until it goes away, which can’t easily/natively be done in DOS/CMD).
