Watched folder files are .cmd to run?

Post by jkwilliams08 » Mon Aug 29, 2011 11:22 pm

On the "2-Action" tab what are the command and parameters if the folder to watch will contain the actual .cmd or .bat files which I want to run? I tried COMMAND: "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" with PARAMETERS: "%FILE%. This did not work.

You need to lookup the help for CMD.EXE. I believe it is:

Code: Select all

c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /C %FILE%
