    BAT File to Run 3 Programs

    I'm trying to create a BAT file to run 3 programs and I can't get it
    to work. Here's my current code:

    @echo off
    start "C:\Program Files\PhraseExpress\phrase.exe"
    start "C:\Program Files\MemInfo\meminfo.exe"
    start "E:\Software\ultra-cpu-monitor_eng\ultra-cpu-monitor.exe"

    When run, I get a Command Prompt box, with the path/file name at the
    top, with the command at the directory where the BAT file is, and the
    programs do not open.

    Any ideas how to get this to work? Thanks for any help.

    Thanks very much. I had seen the "title" in my search for help but I
    thought it wasn't required. I should have tried it. Problem solved!

    Test it - troubleshoot it...
    Open a command prompt and run it from the command prompt and don't put in
    the @echo off until you get it working.

    Or try each line in a command prompt one at a time - if it doesn't work
    there - it is not going to work in a batch script.

    also...

    xcopy f:\apps c:\apps /e /i /h /r /g /c /k /x /y

    That should copy everything from f:\apps to c:\apps (creating c:\apps if it
    does not exist, copying everything including all subdirectories from
    f:\apps, continuing on errors, copying the permissions and even encrypted
    files that it comes across and answering any questions to the
    affirmative...)

    You will need to choose the option, Save As to save this file with .bat extension. For example filename.bat. Now Right- click on Start button and choose open > Double click Programs > here open Startup folder. Now drag your .bat file in the Startup folder and close the dialog box. You won't see the batch file run because you told it to run minimized.
