A simple to create a batch file running a load of files one after another

Repairing Windows installations like I have had to do all too often in the last few weeks means that a load of updates need to be added. My preference for using Shavlik NetChk Protect that I have a folder full of executable path files. That encapsulates the first step: creating a folder and adding the files that you want to run. The next step is to run a command like this:

dir /b * > exec.bat

The /b is the switch that gives a bare file list and that is stored in exec.bat. Running exec.bat affords a bit more automation. True, this might need a spot more sophistication to be truly automatic but it’s a good start.
