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"

Thanks. That works out perfectly. :D

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! :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
