I'm trying to make a batch file run a .exe file after I've downloaded it. The problem is, the name of the downloaded file is randomized upon download (done so from the webpage it's downloaded from). I have no way of guessing the name of the file, so I want the batch file to run the .exe file regardless of what name it may have.
I want it to:
1: download the file - which it does perfectly.
2: then run the .exe file regardless of the name - which doesn't work as intended. (Error; Windows cannot find '*.exe'. Make sure you've typed the name correctly, then try again) - I have tried several solutions provided around the web from a mashup of questions - nothing works.
3: delete the file - which it does perfectly.
This is what I got so far:
echo Downloading file... start "" https://TheWebPagesName.com PING localhost -n 10 >NUL echo Running file... start "C:\Users\MyUsername\OneDrive\Dokumenter\Foldername\*.exe" PING localhost -n 10 >NUL echo Deleting File... del "C:\Users\MyUsername\OneDrive\Dokumenter\Foldername\*.exe" PING localhost -n 2 >NUL echo Done! PING localhost -n 6 >NUL echo Exiting... PING localhost -n 4 >NUL
