    If you search the web, you'll find a lot of them ! One that I like is more a list and explanation about old DOS 7 commands. That could help you find out what to use to create what you need.

    If you tell us what you need with might as well try to give you some hints !

    Charmed Rulez, what do you need the menu for? I would go out and spend a little time learning VB or some other Visual programming language and make a Win32-based menu rather than an old DOS batch file. If you really need to make a batch menu, let me know and I can help you out. I grew up working on DOS 3.0 and Windows 3.0 (ended at DOS 6.2 and Wfw 3.11 before moving to a Win32 environemnt) and I used to write batch files all of the time. I still have all of my old DOS manuals as well, with instructions on every DOS command available back then.

    Don't forget there are programs that will convert batch files to com or exe files. Always a good idea if you don't want people to look at the code or edit it.
    Its not software piracy. I’m just making multiple off site backups.

    I posted a tutorial on batfiles here ages ago, you might find something in that.
    As regards the menu thing, I don't know about XP, but in a version of 2000 (I think) I was on, the ``choice" command doesn't work.

    Yeah, I guess you could write a CHOICE program yourself, from a different language, or you could use the FC command to compare NUL and CON, if you get my meaning, to get the input.

    You'll be able to find a batfile that does this at this location:
