ARC Menu: Cannot get swtiches to work with dos commands.

Postby Mercury » Thu Mar 18, 2004 4:42 am


I cannot get the dos command DEL /q /f to work within arc menu script screen. I can get it to run easily at a command prompt. The same goes for RMDIR /S. Am I typing the syntax incorrectly for ARC's test editor BEDIT? Thanks I appreciate the help. Please email me at

Use RMDIR /s /q

I'm not sure about these - some of these commands work differently in batch files to on the command line. Type HELP DEL at dos prompt.
