Symptom

Your batch does not work as designed

Cause

This can be due to configuration

Solution

Before troubleshooting you should check the command line extensions. You can check this parameter in the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor\EnableExtentions and check if they are enabled 1 or disabled 0.

Change this value and check if your script runs properly. You can also use the /E:ON or /E:OFF parameter under Windows XP or /X or /Y under windows NT 4.0.
