Running multiple batch files simultaneously

July 6, 2011 at 10:46:25
Specs: Windows 7
I want to run 3 batch files all at the same time. I want to invoke them from another "head" batch file. So, I want to run the head batch file, which will call another batch file, then continue on its way while that 1st "sub" batch file is running, then call another abtch file, then repeat the process for a third "sub" batch file. Thus, I want the 3 "sub" batch files to all be running at the same time, and the entire process should complete when all 3 are done.

I have tried the start command, to no avail. I am trying

start cmd.exe /c file.bat

as well (so it opens up another command prompt and runs it there or something?). It is also giving me issues, however, and I was just wondering if there was an easier way to do this.
I know DOS isn't know for multi-tasking, but any help would be appreciated.

start "" "PathName\File.bat"

This question should be posted in Programming Forum, anyway the Windows command line interface is named NT System Console and is ruled by cmd.exe not the legacy DOS
