i am currently creating a batch file that will start up all my programs i use for gaming in a single click. So that way i don't need to go through and approve each program. Currently testing it on two programs.

Itunes and Teamspeak 3 (64-bit)


the problem being i noticed even an elevated command prompt won't run it no matter how i enter the code current code

start "C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes" iTunes.exe
start "%PROGRAMFILES%\TeamSpeak 3 Client\" ts3client_win64.exe


i've also tried

start "C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes" iTunes.exe
start "C:\Program Files\TeamSpeak 3 Client\" ts3client_win64.exe

start "C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes" iTunes.exe
start "%PROGRAMFILES%\TeamSpeak 3 Client\ts3client_win64.exe"

Every single time i try it it fails to boot teamspeak. I thought maybe it had to do with the it being in the "Program Files folder and the "Program Files (x86)"


Then i did a test with ccleaner

Ccleaner 32-bit booted as you can see CP returned no errors

Yet here it is

It seems it won't run 64 bit applications and yet Task Manager says that cmd.exe is running and not cmd.exe*32 is running so i don't understand



I am using a 64 bit copy of Windows 7

start "C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes\iTunes.exe"
start "%PROGRAMFILES%\TeamSpeak 3 Client\ts3client_win64.exe"

The format of the commands you showed was wrong, the executable must be connected to the path and inside the double quotes. That's all I was trying to point out. That's why you were getting the message that the system cannot find the file CCleaner64.exe.

For instance:

start "C:\Program Files\Ccleaner" CCleaner64.exe

should be

start "C:\Program Files\Ccleaner\CCleaner64.exe"
