I need to run a DOS batch file. Once that's completed, I want to open HTML files that get created by the batch file.


What I've done so far is wait 2 seconds and then launch the HTML files - the batch files takes a fraction of a second to run


Instead of this though, should I be using RunWait?

The docs say "Unlike Run, RunWait will wait until the program finishes before continuing." - so I guess YES is the answer?


I thought I'd ask here for confirmation :)

The worst thing would be for the program to run and then not notice that something hadn't quite worked

Yes RunWait with batch files. 

Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford told senators at his Joint Chiefs of Staff confirmation hearing : “If you want to talk about a nation that could pose an existential threat to the United States, I'd have to point to Russia. And if you look at their behavior, it's nothing short of alarming.”
