  1. 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?

    Put the word "Start" in front of each of the lines executing something. That should fix it for you.
