Advanced programming? Writing batch files would be considered low end scripting.

I think it means advanced for batch...

XOIIO (author)MrRedBeard2009-11-22

True, but it was advanced when i was learning it :)

MrRedBeard (author)XOIIO2010-05-05

Well I hope you broaden your knowledge and feel free to ask questions. I recommend downloading MS Express Visual Web Developer and experimenting with existing code.

XOIIO (author)MrRedBeard2010-05-06

Thanks, I'll check into that.

I put the return thingy on my flashdrive with the autorun and tried it on my computer.  It didn't work, so I then tried it out on my brother's computer.
Still didn't work.
Why is that?  Can anyone tell me?

XOIIO (author)Saturn V2010-04-08

Not sure what this question is starting from, but most likely the computer has autorun disbled. Any more details?

Would learing batch be a good way to get a step into programing?

XOIIO (author)graboy2010-02-17

Yes, a bit. I would focus on vbs scripting, and that can do more advanced things, then get into python or c++

For some reason, my computer refuses to allow me o use msg. it says  that it is not recognised. any idea as to what might be causing this to happen?
thx, ty, or whatever you prefer! 

XOIIO (author)demontranoth2009-11-12

sorry this took so long. Did you type it in "MSG * this is my message"?  Sometimes MS-Dos messes up, but it wouldn't let batch files open at all if it did.

demontranoth (author)XOIIO2009-11-15

strange... it works on xp but not on vista... 

smilerxs (author)2009-09-02

what language is this? c , java or other?

XOIIO (author)smilerxs2009-09-02

neither, a batch file simply displays the text, and waits fir you to press a key to display the next line. Very simple stuff.

XOIIO (author)Hacking Ameatur2009-06-24


you're really good with this kind of stuff i am just learning and i was really confused but both your tutorials have helped me so much in a very little amount of time. thanks! ; )

Your welcome, I'm Glad I could help someone :)

I think this is very interesting, but the part were you make an icon for the autorun file is unclear, can you explain please?

XOIIO (author)B.F.L.M2009-05-20

Umm, i don't think i mentioned an autorun file, I'm not so good with those,and you can't change the file.

will421 (author)XOIIO2009-05-27

Then what`s with the talk about .ini files in your batch file???

XOIIO (author)will4212009-05-27

I'm not sure, i'll check it.

"Thanks for all the fish" Hehe, a little "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" put in there for good measure, I see.
