How do you execute a DOS CMD script loaded in a Notepad file? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a DOS CMD script (.txt) supplied by a maths professor to run on a .wma music file. The purpose is to add sequence numbers in front of the .wma records. He gave an example of a .bmt file, which I cannot use, probably needing special software. When I try to enter the lines of his CMD script after a DOS prompt, it does not recognize the command. How do I run this .txt script, or change it to .bmt? It lies as a Notepad file in the same directory as the music file.

    Thank-you

  • Cannot see any listing to a .bmt file that would a command script, ask your professor about that.

    Rename the script .cmd to make it a command script file see if it runs then. Also post a copy of script so others can look and help \ comment on that script.

  • Hi,

    In addition, for script issue, I suggest discussing it in our MSDN forum. They are the best resource to troubleshoot this issue.
