Help me create a .bat file!

  1. Hello all,

    Here's is what I am trying to do: just make a .bat file I can pin into my start menu (or put in startup folder) to launch two instances of SETI@Home CLI, because I have HyperThreading and I can.

    I want to have them set to different CPU affinities, start minimized, and run on Low priority.

    The two applications I will be launching are:
    F:/SETICLI/seti.exe
    F:/SETICLI2/seti.exe

    And is there anyway I can run them to not show in the taskbar? That may be asking alot, but I'm just wondering if it's possible.

    Thanks

    EDIT: Well, I tried it, and I need the two apps to open in seperate windows and for that window (seti.bat) to close after launching these two programs with the aforementioned attributes.

    Anyways, your .bat file should be sth like this:

    @echo off
    START /MIN /HIGH CMD /C PRIOAFF [AFFINITY] F:\SETICLI\SETI.EXE
    START /MIN /HIGH CMD /C PRIOAFF [AFFINITY] F:\SETICLI\SETI.EXE

    You need some third party program to hide taskbar entries.
