I want to make a batch file to open Outlook Express and Free SMTP Server at the same time. How do I go about this? The paths are as follows:-

"C:\Program Files\Free SMTP Server\localsrv.exe"

"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE"

cd C:\Program Files\Free SMTP Server


cd C:\Program Files\Outlook Express

Your suggestion suffers from same problem I had. The second command will only run after the program open by the first command has been closed. Does anyone know a way round this?

START "" "C:\Program Files\Free SMTP Server\localsrv.exe"

START "" "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE"
