    How do I go about making a .bat file that will execute 2 files? I want it to open one application, then about 5 seconds later open the second application. So far I have it opening the first, but not the second. Any help with be appreciated.

    To start two applications you can use something like this example I once made to start Opera together with noopads (No Opera Ads). Don't know how to achieve the five second delay at the moment.

    @ECHO OFF
    START "Opera" /B "C:\Programme\Opera\opera.exe"
    START "Noopads" /B "C:\download\noopads\noopads.exe"

    If you still want to do a pause between loading the progs then go here.

    Thanks! :)

    Jmtyra, have you tried it? Seems the CHOICE command isn't available in XP.

    You are correct yoyo. My apologies--I just got that off of google.com, didn't try it out or anything. I checked out the link that allan posted (thanks, allan!) and that appears to be a more viable solution. Later! ;)

    Thanks! :)
