Hi helper,
I use in my code:

Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(scriptToRun);

and it runs file1.cmd that containes the following:

file1.cmd:

set ADVANTAG_FOLDER=c:\Yoss_test
RD /s /q %ADVANTAG_FOLDER%


but it doesnt run file2.cmd :-(

file2.cmd:

echo "after File " >> after.txt


Do you have a clue why file1 is executed and file2 is not. I dont get any errors at all.

Thanks
Yossi

Are you sure it is not running? Or are you just having problems finding the "after.txt" file?

I would suggest that either you use the version of exec() that sets the working directory, or scan your disk to see where this file is.
