This question must be posted in the Programming Forum as there is no DOS in Windows 7 (it is a NT kernel system).

So stated your r knowledge of batch scripting is quite poor as

1) to check ErrorLevel you have to code

if ErrorLevel 5

2) Your if has no meaning, replace with

if "%input%"=="pass" GOTO :Admin

and for now I stop here.

the quotes on if %input%==pass are optional so thats wrong. I was right on that.. and if errorlevel == 5 is correct i tested it its when i type in the "pass" part it doesnt work!

Set /p=Admin Password:


Set /P input=Admin Password:

I missed that mistake, but I confirm you have a raw knowledge of batch scripting and suggest you try to press the Enter key instead of typing any password to see why double quotes are needed in IF statements.
