Need some help writing a batch script that would run two executable files 30 seconds apart.
Scenario: The exacutables need to be run in the following directory C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools. The first executable is "TPAutoConnect.exe -d", script should pause for 30 seconds then run "TPAutoConnect.exe -v -q"

Thanks in advance,

✔ Best Answer
If you need to wait until the first command is complete you might be able to use call, on the first command closes the other would run with a start.

call TPAutoConnect.exe -d"
start TPAutoConnect.exe -v -q"
