I'm using Windows 7, and have a simple batch file to copy portable executables off my thumb drive to %TEMP%, and then start them. The goal is to prevent Windows from holding my thumbdrive hostage until I kill all the programs I started up from it.
However the control flow does not continue to the next app unless I kill the first one, which obviously doesn't work for this purpose.
In a Unix shell script I'd simply add
& after the executable I start up, but I can't find an equivalent for batch files.
How can I do this?
