How can I start multiple programs using one line of command? This is what I have so far:

cmd /C "C:\Program Files\PeerBlock\peerblock.exe" && "C:\Program Files\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe"

I do not want uTorrent to start if PeerBlock is not started.

(I need this for Launchy's runner plugin.)

Make a batch file - call it Launchy.bat or something and add all your commands there.

In this case, add start before the commands if they are not console commands, otherwise, the batchfile will wait for each process to exit before continuing. – surfasb Jan 17 '12 at 23:45
