I'm experienceing a problem with a batch file command - when I run the program, I have a "PAUSE" command at the end of the batch file, however, the command window still automatically closes instantly, too quickly for me to see the results. Is there another way to prevent the command window from closing, or to somehow get the results? i.e, can a printed version be sent, inserted somewhere?
Background - I know squat about command lines, so please, if you can, any response please dumb down to novice level explanations. I am ultimately trying to determine versions of a MS Project file, and have used/followed this website instructions exactly, however the results won't display for me - the command window just dissapears instantly:
Microsoft website I used for instructions: A simple method to determine the version of an mpp file (MS Project plan file)
The text/commands within the batch file:
@ECHO OFF REM Version.bat ECHO Filename: %1 ECHO. ECHO -- CHECK FOR PROJECT VERSION -- strings %1 | findstr "[0-9],.,....,...." 2>NUL ECHO Check the following list for the first one or two digits of the string above (xx,.,....,....) ECHO List of xx (Product Name): 8 (98), 9 (2000), 10 (2002), 11 (2003), 12 (2007), 14 (2010) ECHO. ECHO -- CHECK FOR MPP FILE VERSION -- strings %1 | findstr ".MPP" 2>NUL ECHO Check the following list for the digit(s) at the end of the string above (...MPPxx) ECHO List of xx (Product Name): 8 (98), 9 (2000/2002/2003), 12 (2007), 14 (2010) ECHO.
