Hello, I have an Apache/MySQL setup on this WinXP development computer and would like to start the monitoring tools at once with one shortcut. I created a batch file like this: When I launched the batch file, it opened the Apache monitor, but not the MySQL monitor. So I did a little experimentation. I replaced them with programs whose behavior could more easily be tracked. What I found out was that it launches the first program, and waits until it is closed before the second is launched. How do I get both to launch at the same time and have the window close?
