Batch file FTW.

One sec let me get the info for ya.

Code:
C:\Folder1\Program1.exe
D:\Folder2\Folder3\Program2.exe
C:\Program Files\Good Thing\Program3.exe

Just write something similar in a *.txt file and rename it to *.bat

Should get what you need to do.

it worked great, just not the way i wanted it to :\

i have my batch file like this atm:

QUOTE said:
"C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Ambiente de Trabalho\[foldername]\MoonlightEngine.exe" -1121
"D:\GameZ\EMS\MapleStory.exe"

the -1121 is a param for that program to work correctly..

With the batch file like this, MapleStory will only run after I close MLEngine

What should I do that have the batch file make this.

Open MLEngine
wait about 4/5 secounds
Open MapleStory
Close the cmd prompt

Hope u can help me,
thanks in advance

start "c:\something.exe"
start "c:\documents and settings\owner\somethingelse.exe"

Quotation marks are needed if you have spaces in the directory.
Batch file of course.

In Vista (and maybe XP) there is a command TIMEOUT which takes a single parameter for the number of seconds:

TIMEOUT 10 - waits 10 seconds.

If this isn't available on XP, then you can cheat with something like this:

CHOICE /T:10 /D y > NUL

This runs CHOICE which is normally used for input selection within batch files. /T:x is the number of seconds to wait and /D y makes the default choice (which doesn't make any difference in your case) y. > NUL pipes the output to NUL (which is the same as /dev/null on linux) so you don't see any output. This could also be used on the TIMEOUT function too.

Hopefully that helps.

There is no REAL wait command... but you can cheat with the following
Code:
PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 4000 >NUL
That will give you 4 seconds.
Code:
PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 10000 >NUL
That will give you 10 seconds.

If you don't know, ping checks the responce time with another computer on the net. 1.1.1.1 doesn't exist. This command tells it to check 1.1.1.1 once, and wait x number of milliseconds before giving up.
Code:
>NULL
This just gets rid of what ping would display on the screen. So your new batch file is
Code:
"start C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Ambiente de Trabalho\[foldername]\MoonlightEngine.exe" -1121
PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 10000 >NUL
"start D:\GameZ\EMS\MapleStory.exe"
