What about using Scheduled Tasks?
Sorry I have not gotten back sooner, I read your reply and and have used the scheduler in the past. I did not have time to play with it then, then two days later this machine started to act up so my mind was elsewhere. I had a stick of ram die and did not catch it before it lead to other issues, anyway all is fine now it was time for a new build.
Back to my batch file thinking, what I am trying to accomplish is to be able to click an icon once a week and let the batch file go off. I want control of starting and for them to run one after the other in sequence, your input is always appreciated.
