Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you can find a copy: “Windows NT Shell Scripting” by Tim Hill. While some commands options have changed in Windows XP and newer, all the concepts are the same.

From Microsoft Press: “Administrator’s Pocket Consultant: Microsoft Windows Command-Line” which covers Windows XP versions of the commands and some VBScript.

An item to review is WMIC which is a command line tool to the WMI interface.

A couple of web sites:

    The books I used to learn batch file programming, many, many years ago are out of print now. There are sites that still support batch files for DOS. Google it and you will see.

    I would also recommend taking a look at Windows PowerShell if you haven't. VBScript is also a good thing to learn. Many tasks can be accomplished easier with VBScript than with a bat script.
