somethings has been changed in my win10 pro (Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17763.134]) box, and now I have issues with bat files:

  1. when I double click on them, I get a cmd, empty that shows up for a couple of seconds, and then closes. The .bat is NOT run
  2. if I open a cmd can cd to the dir containing the .bat, and I type the first letters of the .bat, TAB does not complete the file name, it does complete filenames of exe files.
  3. if I run the .bat from the cmd I opened in 2., it DOES run fine
  4. I have checked "assoc .bat" and "ftype batfile" and both return expected values.

Any insight would be super useful...

  • actually, found the issue, I had an Autorun configured at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor that was the culprit. Thanks! – albert_vad Nov 30 '18 at 19:58
