Specs: Windows XP
 Hi,I would like to execute two batch files located at different paths concecutively, that is only when the first one completes , then the second should start and preferably in the same window.

 I did.. I have something like :cd xyz\abc\deployment\tomcat-6.0-5.1.1\bincall startup.batcd\cd C:\def\123\svn_root\assemblycall menuscript.batcd ..The first bat fires up the tomcat server and the second is suppose to deploy additional plugins in the same window , If I do this , the tomcat first fires up .. fine .. but the second one fires up when the server is still booting up .. Is there a way to know if the first process has comepleted and then the second one starts ..??
