    I was not sure where to ask this, but I figured .bat files are a part of the OS, so this would be a good place. This is what I have in .bat file so far:

    I need this .bat to auto-close after it is done running that command. i also tried "@exit" as the last line, but it just won't auto-close, which is what I need!

    Code:
    
    @echo off
     start  C:\Users"XXX"\Apps\TimerTool\TimerTool.exe -t 0.5 -minimized

    your timer tool holds the window open.

    use this line..

    start /b "Some Title" "C:\Users"XXX"\Apps\TimerTool\TimerTool.exe" -t 0.5 -minimized

    /b means don't wait for process
    the some title or "" are needed as if the first parameter should be the command but has space in it... the command will fail... therefore always give a title and than you dont have to worry.
