1. The seperate batch file fails when run from autoexec.bat but works if you
do it interactively (ie. run the batch file). Dunno what to do there except
possibly CALL the batch file at the end of autoexec.bat (I can't remember
what the difference between
is but IIRC, there is one.
2. The DOS environment is different *inside* a batch to that at the
C: prompt. Do a SET in the batch and compare the output with SET at the C:
prompt and see if there is extra environment required, then add that
manually in the batch
