I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but it looked like the most appropriate.....

We created some DOS batch files as part of a data transfer process, and then created some PIF files to make the batch files a little more Windows-friendly and less obtrusive. The batch/PIF worked fine on our "model" machine, but things started going awry once the programs were set up on new machines and taken to their new operating location.

Somewhere along the way the batches began to mis-fire and not do their job properly. Oddly enough, when the PIF files were deleted and recreated, things began to work right again.

Some changes had been made to the batch files themselves after the original PIFs had been created. I've been assured that it was not a change in location problem, just a change in the batch file commands. Aside from the possibility of the path and working directory becoming misaligned (due to a move from a "testing" directory to a "working" directory), is there anything else that could have caused this problem? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>
