batch file not finding exe files

I am attempting to write a batch file that would allow me to open approx 5 executable processes at the same time. I was able to get Outlook.exe and Iexplore.exe working fine. I am having issues with the other exe files. I am getting a prompt stating that the exe files could not be found and to check the name. I am sure that I have the correct name for the exe files and have even tried to enter the directory file path directly into the batch file.

If you are launching your .exe by issuing a Start command and the path/filenames have embedded blanks, you have to code

Start "" "C:\Program Files\.... .exe"

i.e. put a pair of double quotes (") after the Start and embrace the path/filename with ".

I set it up with these parameters and it was still not working so far. I am still playing with it some. It doesn't make any sense that it is able to find two .exe files in the same file path as the ones that aren't working.

May you post the whole path and filename of the .exe the system can't find?

Post the statement of your batch to launch them too.
