Batch file Batch file borgkling2003 (MIS) (OP) 16 May 04 20:47 How do I create an EXE file that when executed, will execute two other EXE files from different location? RE: Batch file percent (IS/IT--Management) 17 May 04 02:39 Go in to QBasics help file and lookup the shell function this command is used to execute programs %, 2004 RE: Batch file Buff1 (Programmer) 17 May 04 03:28 If you plan to creat all three exes, first you will needQuickBasic rather than Qbasic. QuickBasic has a compiler.Second, it may be to your advantage to use chain, in thatcase, instead of shell "programname.exe"This will require the runtime library, brun45.exe. This willhowever make your programs significantly smaller (since you use brun45.lib instead of bcom45.lib when compiling).The brun45.exe must be in the folder(s) containing the program to be run. RE: Batch file borgkling2003 (MIS) (OP) 18 May 04 20:26 this is the script I currently use for the batch fileREM - execute the two programs for FAXING.CALL C:\RIP2ESERV.EXECALL C:\SENDSERVICE.EXEEXITBUT...its not how I want it to work.I want RIP2ESERV.EXE and SENSERVICE to execute on separate command windows respectively and stay on. AND the main screen that executes the screen to close after running.How do I do this? Its running on WINNT.Thanks RE: Batch file CubeE101 (Programmer) 8 Jun 04 01:42 Try:Shell "C:\RIP2ESERV.EXE"Shell "C:\SENDSERVICE.EXE"Qbasic is not really meant to do multitasking so you may need to look for a more current (windows) dev platform...
