See more: Commands .bat
Hi , I need some assistance to execute multiple commands from a .bat file on a cmd prompt.
e.g. I am executing an exe :
cd \
cd "D:\AWD_NT\BIN"

The problem I am facing is that I need to execute 2 more commands after that in the same "USERIDMGREX.EXE" .exe.

the commands i need to run are :

"dumpids" and "delid" ... and "delid" takes another parameter , e.g. "delid TMOODLEY". These need to be executed in the same exe above("USERIDMGREX.EXE").

Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

So add those commands to the .bat file. What exactly is stopping you?

the exe is a console app and its not accepting the parameters ... I'm doing something wrong but dont know what.

How USERIDMGREX.EXE works is not clear from the question. If it is a program that displays it's own prompt and waits for the user to type an input then it may be possible to redirect standard input from a file. This is most easily demonstrated with the command processor itself and a text file containing one command per line.

e.g. commands.txt
echo Display system time and date
time /t
date /t

At a command prompt we can issue the command
e:>cmd < commands.txt

and see the output
e:> cmd < commands.txt
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.
e:>echo Displaying time and date
Displaying time and date
e:>time /t
e:>date /t

USERIDMGREX.EXE may respond to redirected input in the same manner
e.g. commands.txt

USERIDMGREX awd.ini < commands.txt

If your .exe program is not accepting parameters then you need to look at the code. Changing the layout of the .bat file will not make any difference.
