I'm trying to create a shortcut that will run a command line... Every time I edit the shortcut it says "program not found"... But when i run it in the dos prompt it works fine...

XP btw...

Edit and create a command prompt using DOS BASIC. Save the file somewhere on your drive. Then create a shortcut to that file and place it on your desktop (if the desktop is where you want the shortcut to exist).

I have a shortcut to a command prompt to reconfig my network settings should I experience network problems. Real easy to use. Just double click.

ok... unfortunately my 12 yo self taught dos memory is a little fuzzy... :lol:

how do you create a command in basic again?? :cry:

I tried this too... Target: cmd /k c:\program files\etc\etc.exe -bla -blaa

but the space in "program files" messes it up! :mad:

the notepad approach was just coming back to me from the furthest reaches of my noodle... :lol:

do I have to put anything other than: c:\program files\etc\etc.exe -bla -blaa in the batch file??
