The system cannot write to the specified devi

Specs: Windows 7 (64)
Hello
I have a little problem. After executing an option (Start slapd) from my menu and finish executing every echo I have shows "The system cannot write to the specified device." I have to close the console and open a new again to get the echo working ok again.
Have no idea how to avoid getting this message, making the echo work as they should.
Thank you!

Its just a hunch, but does this give the same error:

echo test 0>&1

OK, I've tested taht and then tried something and I found what happens. I introduced some extended ASCII chars to create a menu in a windows editor and after edited it from the console. The chars changed (i. e ╠ FOR Ì OR ║ FOR º) but it displays them fine. But it seems it's not a good aidea... I'll try something else. But if you know a way of making these work I would be grateful.

Thanks!

Yeah those characters can be a little bit of a problem, you have to be careful because editors will save as unicode (particularly notepad) if you copy from charmap, ect. Cmd/bat scripts have to be ASCII/ANSII.

Have a look at this thread http://www.computing.net/answers/pr... particularly #3.
